'Papa and Farmor' got to take care of the girls for a couple of days. Bjorn was in Denver at a friends wedding, and Jenny took the opportunity to visit her brother and sister-in-law in Portland. That left Esther and I with the wonderful responsibility of taking care of two special girls! We read lots of books, walked to 'the candy store,' went to the beach and showed them off at church. The weekend went very well. Markus came over as well one night to enjoy his nieces. I was able to ignore my impending report card deadline and sermon prep for 48 hours. Ada is becoming very independent and Ruby is mellow and happy.
