All is quiet on the home front...

Brittany left yesterday morning around 11:30. She is now going to experience life on her own....well with her boyfriend and his mom that is. Chris did tear up for a minute and I knew he would, after all this is still is oldest baby. I love him for that. He is not afraid to show emotions when it comes to his family.
My parents came over early to give Britt her birthday card and to say goodbye. Britt spent a lot of her time during the day for the last month with her grandmother (Chris' mom). But Kenny and Britt did stop by to say their farewells one last time before hitting the road for 2 1/2 hours.
Now that Katie gets her room back we have lots of work to do. I now have an empty closet and dresser to fill back up with Katie's clothes. We are also going to bring down the desk that she has up in her room to accommodate the extra computer we have for the kids. Just not too sure where we are going to put it yet. Katie now has a cell phone. She is soooo happy about that. We really didn't have to show her too much as far as operating it. Kids learn fast these days. All we have to do is buy a protective case for it. Brittany anticipated that we would want the phone we got her back. She wouldn't need it because her boyfriend gave one of his spare phones so it would not cost him anything to talk to her and her friends could call her free because they all have the same carrier. Jeff got himself a new phone so now everyone is happy.

Isn't it funny how kids just pick up technology so quick?
