Bye Bye Jared.

Published by at 9:21 pm under Uncategorized

My hubby has just arrived in WA to give some lectures and to preach three times tomorrow. We went to see him off today. Here is Cassie waiting in front of the plane.This is the first time in 19 years that Jared and I will be staying apart for more than one night. I actually have a read bad stomach ache, I think it is because I feel bad that he is gone (lame I know), because in actual fact I thought “yay, I will have a good sleep without him taking all of the doona, and I won’t have to listen to him snoring) but my body doesn’t lie. I felt this way before my big trips to the US and the UK (nerves), and when we moved from Moe to our new house. Who knew I was such a nervy person.Of course Cassie started to cry when he left, while Camden made crashing plane noises (not helpful). After waving good bye, and paying $20 for parking (absolute rip off for one and half hours), I went to pick up Lachlan. He spent to night sleeping under a tarp (I’m sure there is a fancier name for that, but it still was a tarp). Lachlan was so cold, that he didn’t change out of his clothes since Thursday, eww! I was waiting for him to get out of the bus, but all the boys looked the same in their army gear. I looked around a boy, to find Lachlan say “hi mum”, he looked like a man!! I’m sure that he has lost weight too, his hands even look bigger. He proudly showed us his left over food.I then had to pick up two of my girls from Girls Brigade indoor camp. It’s nice to have my kiddies back. We had tea (pizza), then had our devotions (1 Timothy) which I got Lachlan to read, and then we prayed, of course for Dad. Stay safe, teach well, and come back to us.

We are on morning tea tomorrow, we also have a lunch and a catechism exam for Lachlan and Alycia. I have done heaps of cooking in the last week, namely 4 lemon meringue pies. I use this recipe, supper easy and tasty.I also just made some corn flake honey joys and caramel sweets.
