Well Doug headed back to NJ last night and got there bright and early this morning. So I've got a bunch of sad little ones on my hands. I think this time was a lot harder than the last time Doug left. But hopefully we'll be hearing something really soon about a job (keep your fingers crossed for us!) We are hoping that Doug will be back here for good by September/October. So basically we are just waiting around for jobs to get posted so that he can apply for them. He met with a couple people while he was here and it sounded really promising. I know that we all are going to miss him alot while he's gone. Poor Ryann was pretty sad last night at bed time after he had gone and this morning I think she expected Doug to walk through the door. But luckily with kids it goes in spurts since they do get distracted doing other things for a while.
Otherwise, we are all doing well. We celebrated Doogie's birthday this past weekend since Doug wouldn't be here for his actual birthday next week. The kids had bunch of fun swimming at Papa's pool and playing with Doug. Then yesterday before Doug left we took the kids to Chuckee Cheese for the afternoon. They had a blast! So anyways, just keep us in your thoughts and prayers that Doug will be getting a job here soon and we'll have him back with us.
Here are some pictures I took of the kids this past weekend...sometimes it is still hard to believe that I have 5 kids! LOL! It helps that CJ is a very good baby and hardly ever cries. The kids all adore him, and I love watching them all interact with eachother!
