At lunchtime my director came in and said a package had arrived for me. I had no idea what it could be – junk mail? Not the star I ordered for the float, because that had already arrived. (Update coming soon.) I opened the large box and it was…..a jigsaw!
A nice jigsaw! Nothing like the weeny $20 model I bought at Walmart years and years ago – this thing is the real deal! And who sent me this package of awesomeness? My Dad. 🙂
I am so happy! The big kids and I are cutting the roof panels for the stable tomorrow, so I’ll let you know how it works.
By the way, when I told the kids about it at lunch, one of the boys asked, “Do you live with your Mom and Dad?”
“No,” I answered. “They live far away and I live in my own house.”
He looked very troubled. “…. Why don’t you want to live with your parents?”
I shared the story with his Mom. She laughed and said that he’s told her he’s going to live with her forever.
