We've had a very nice day visiting Granddaddy and Mamaliz (my parents). We drove down last night and listened to the Carolina/Georgetown game on the way. Sad, very sad. My predictions were already shot. I don't know if I have anyone left in the final brackets! But I digress...When we arrived here we were treated to a wonderful salmon dinner and enjoyed the evening.
This morning, Andrew, Coty and I went to Furman University for an admissions visit. The campus was lovely and we had a good time. Andrew likes Furman and I expect will apply there in addition to a few other places. Still lots of time to decide!
We spent the afternoon working in the yard, mostly pruning and raking. Working in the yard is relaxing for me. Mama kept saying, "You don't need to do that," but I was so happy to be able to be outside and do something productive. I love how you can see the results of your work when prune and rake. My mom humored me and even let me prune the aucubas. I've been wanting to do that for awhile. I saved some cuttings to bring home and root. We also did some weed pulling and general clean up and had a lovely time.
Coty's had fun playing basketball with the boys (when we weren't doing yard work) and doing Sodoku puzzles. So, it's been a relaxing day for him, too.
In a few minutes, we're headed out to a Japanese steak house - you know one of those places where they juggle the knives and cook in front of you. The boys have never been to one so this will be a treat for them. We'll head home after that and be back before too late.
Tomorrow is Thomas's appointment with the knee surgeon. Thanks for your continued prayers for wisdom for us and for the surgeon. We'll keep you posted.
