I am sitting on the couch waiting for Stephen to get back from taking our babysitters home. Tonight we left the girls with non-family babysitters for the first time and went out on a date. These wonderfully sweet girls from Stephen's class actually asked Stephen if they could babysit for us tonight.. for free. Originally they wanted to watch the girls so we could go to the school play.. but then plans changed and they still wanted to come over just so we could go out for a few hours. We got to go out to eat at a nice restaurant downtown (courtesy of John's fun $$) and then sip coffee at our favorite coffee shop over a shared piece of carrot cake... and talk...and talk.. and talk.... How blessed we are. How thankful I am for the sweet and generous hearts of those precious girls who stood guard over our home and tenderly cared for our little treasures.
