July 14 - Day 16 - Welcome Home!

Today was a wonderful day! Today, everybody came home! Finally! After two weeks, we got to see our family again! We did some tidying up this morning, and then Molly had a piano lesson. After lunch, we headed out to the airport! We were all so excited! We waited for about a half an hour, and then they landed and came off. It was such a joyous reunion for everyone. Everybody was hugging, kissing, and sharing stories. When we came home, our missionaries gave everyone their gifts, and then we all had dinner. Everybody went to bed early because they were so wiped out. We are so glad that they are home and we are thanking God that they had safe travels. ~Teresa

I liked seeing Mom, Mary Clare, Richard and Patrick because I missed them a lot. A looooooot! ~Sean

I liked when everybody came home because I love them! ~Molly

My favorite part of today was going to the airport and hugging Mommy at the airport! ~Brighid

July 13 - Day 15

Today was a busy day. Grama came over and helped me clean the house. We vaccuumed, dusted, and cleaned the bathrooms. It was great to have Grama helping me! After lunch, the little girls came back home and we ran to the grocery store for a few things. We had a quiet afternoon and then we went for an ice cream treat after dinner. We're all looking forward to everyone coming home tomorrow. ~Teresa

I liked having egg salad, chex mix, and iced tea for lunch. ~Sean

I liked playing with the Updikes and I liked to hear that mom was coming home the next day! ~Molly

My favorite part of today was coming home! ~Brighid

July 12 - Day 14

Today was a fun day! Rebecca, Matthew, and Jeremy came over to play and swim. The kids all had tons of fun and after lunch, they swam for over an hour. They played some more, and then the Saguns left. Sean had a baseball game which the Pawsox won 16-12. The little girls went over to the Updikes for a sleepover, and Sean had a camp-out in Mary Clare's bed. Everyone was tired after such a fun day.  ~Teresa

I enjoyed watching Brandon hit a home run at baseball and I also enjoyed winning against the Muckdogs for the first time in three games. ~Sean

I liked when the Updikes picked me up and brought me and Brighid out for ice cream and then brought us over for a sleepover. ~Molly

I liked swimming with just my life jacket in the pool! ~Brighid

July 11 - Day 13

Today was a productive day. I cleaned up the fall out from the weekend with the kids, and then Grama came out. We had lunch with her, and then we went grocery shopping. We had one heaping cart, and we ended up walking out of the checkout with two large carts mostly filled. It was super hot today, so dad took the kids swimming, and then we went to Bella Pizza for dinner. We also stopped down at Paddy's game in Boston. When we came home, we had a relaxing evening and a good nights rest! ~Teresa

I liked going out to dinner and after that, going to baseball and watching Michael hit a home run into the trees! ~Sean

I liked going out to dinner because the food was really good and I liked going to the game because it was really good and they were winning. ~Molly

I liked going out to dinner and baseball. ~Brighid

It says 87 degrees, but this picture was taken after the day had cooled off!

July 10 - Day 12

Today was a long day. I worked from 9-2:30. The kids played and went swimming, and we had dinner when I got home. We went to Mass at Sts. Peter and Paul, and when we got home, dad made Black Cow's for the kids. Gabriel ate three bowls of cereal for his evening snack. He didn't really eat much of his dinner, but he certainly made up for it with the cereal! ~Teresa

My favorite part of today was the Black Cow's dad made us! ~Sean

I loved the Black Cow's and I liked Sts. Peter and Paul Church. ~Molly

I liked the Black Cow's that dad made for us! I also liked having fun with my siblings. ~Brighid

July 9 - Day 11

Today was a nice quiet day. I worked from 10-2:30, and then came home and relaxed. The kids played quietly all day, and dad rented a carpet cleaner and cleaned most of the rugs in the house. We had leftovers for dinner and a nice cold ice cream treat in the evening. ~Teresa

I enjoyed the pick out of the box today. It was the foam ABC's. ~Sean

I liked when dad cleaned the carpets and I liked the Klondike bars. ~Molly

I liked swimming and when dad cleaned the carpets. ~Brighid

July 8 - Day 10

Today was a productive day. I gave Molly her first sewing lesson and she really enjoyed it! After some more practice, I'm sure she'll be great at sewing. Brighid slept for 13 hours last night. By the time she woke up, it was almost lunch time! Mrs. Coughlin dropped off dinner for us so I didn't have to worry about cooking something. We had a quiet afternoon, and then the girls went back to the garden to harvest Radishes, Peas, and Lettuce with Dad. We went to the Senior A baseball game and watched a few innings and then brought Sean home. He had an awesome time the past two days. ~Teresa

I liked swimming with the Wojcinski's and going down to see Nathan and Drew. ~Sean

I liked going in the garden today because I got hot. ~Molly

I liked having Molly teach me how to jump rope. Jump roping is lots of fun! ~Brighid
