"Nobody can do for little children what grandparents do. Grandparents sort of sprinkle stardust over the lives of little children."- Alex Haley

Mimi and Chief are here! We have been anticipating their arrival since before we arrived, and we are so happy that they are in Dublin. I am not exactly sure what the boys think about this visit in that, they are so happy to see them, but they have no idea how far they have come.

The day that they arrived, it was a beautiful crisp, sunny day. Even though Mimi and Chief did take a short nap (the jet lag on the way over here can be a little rough) they were up in plenty of time to play with the boys in our "garden".

My plan (I ALWAYS have a plan) was to have them surprise the boys by picking them up at school. Unfortunately the the kids were coughing and sneezing a little, and I decided to keep them, and their runny noses at home. Since they were better the next day, they did go to school and my parents did get to pick them up and see their school. It was a good day despite the Irish buckets of rain.

Hopefully the rain clears up so that we can give them a great tour of our new hometown!

P.S. Tom is home after about two weeks away, and does not plan to travel again for a few weeks- yahoo!
