A Thousand Gifts, September 5

I just want to go on record as saying that I am a fan of the three day weekend.  Especially when Micah gets to be off for all three days.  Yes, you read that right, Micah was home for three whole days, three and a half, if you count the fact that he got done at like 1 pm on Friday afternoon (of course, he went in around 4ish, so he still worked quite a bit).   We have played games, we had family over, we had friends over, we ran errands, we cleaned, we cooked, we relaxed and watched TV, we even went on a hike at a nearby state park this morning.  It was so nice and I think that neither Micah nor I am ready to go back to the real world tomorrow, but I am going to choose to just be so thankful for the good weekend that we had.

Micah even got to go with me to pick up the boys on Friday from school.  It was so cute, because he hid in the back of the van and completely surprised the boys who squealed/screamed very loudly when they realized he was there.  I can't remember if I mentioned that he is on a surgery rotation this month, but that is what he is doing and the best news so far with this rotation is that he only has to work one weekend.  I love it when he has the weekend off...have I mentioned that once or twice?  The boys love having their daddy around and they spent hours this weekend playing legos together.
