Jacob loved being with grandparents, who wouldn't? Ice cream cone anyone? Jacob asked every few minutes where we were but I tried to convince my mom that I start my day with, "My daddy is at work today?" and "when will Daddy be home?" Inman says that when I am gone that Jacob asks several times an hour where I am....all while having fun but just wanting to keep tabs on everyone's where abouts. I KNOW that he had fun because after being back a few minutes Jacob wanted to be with Mema alone and told me to "go into the den but not on a trip," at Dadoh and Nana Jeanne's house the next day.
We had a great time away. Grown up time and having a NOLA break (good for the mental health) but I was personally ready to be with Jacob again after 2 nights. (We were there for 3)
We spent last week with family in Atl. Jacob has all of his grandparents and 5 great grandparents! It always goes too fast but we are looking forward to the upcoming holidays too.
I have no pictures to post tonight because I am still getting our house back together and the camera cord is yet to show up. Inman took a chance to poke fun at me because I always misplace that thing! I promise to post some this week......

We are finishing up a whirlwind week and are leaving today to head to Atl. We are leaving Jacob in the care of eager grandparents and heading to Ohio. No, not the bahamas but some time together, grown ups, talking about grown up things. Hey! Talking, getting to see each other besides passing like ships in the night, handing off the baton, I mean Jacob. Inman has several speaking engagements on behalf of Baptist Crossroads www.baptistcrossroads.com
We knew this would be a great opportunity for us. So, I agreed to 2 nights and it turned into 3. I was doing fine and check the weather a possible tropical storm or more headed our way! My imagined first evacuation of NOLA post-K did not involve me being across the country, my child being in another city & needing to pack up my house in N.O! I have prayed through all the "anxiety" verses and am putting one foot in front of the other. I am alternating between complete denial of a storm and totally freaking out and making Inman promise me if a major storm develops that I could return and pack up what survived before that I vowed I would protect with my life....baby, wedding pictures etc.
So, "It is good for him." Our child that is, if his parents have some grown up time together. That is what THEY all say. Spending time together, you come back stronger for your kid, right? Yeah, unless there is a hurricane and your mother has to be put in a mental hospital:)

In the chair?
Sleeping in Jacob's bed?
Our new friend, Ki (not sure how to spell but rhymes with Sigh). K lives in our house, unless he stays at church which he did the other day. He is small, according to Jacob. He does eat, brush his teeth (in fact he shares a toothbrush with Jacob), he likes to go to church and mother's morning out. Sometimes he does cry for his momma. He sleeps in Jacob's bed and sometimes Jacob holds him in his lap. Sometimes he wakes Jacob up and wants to play. A lot of times he is in the other room when we are all in the den but Jacob always knows where he is. I asked the preschool director if there is anyone named Kai, Ki, Kei anything sounding like Sigh but with a K. No, no one by that name. What an imagination!

Did you know?
*Every year almost 3,000 children die of cancer. *The national government recently cut the budget for funding of pediatric cancer research.*Currently there are 30,000-40,000 children being treated for cancer in the US.*As a nation, each year we spend 14 billion dollars per year on the space program and only 35 million on childhood cancer.
I plan to leave this link on the blog. Please consider giving and hug your children tightly!

He loved sprinkling the chocolate on the top.
Inman's favorite part of the day was the Georgia Tech score
Jacob was actually able to sing some of Happy Birthday, still a 2 person chorus was weak!
This was the view from our front porch about mid-day. It rained really hard and the drains could not keep up. Luckily, we were not flooded for long. A good day for staying in and kicking off college football season. A perfect day for Inman!
