Its not often I find all 4 kids sitting at the island without some kind of trouble going on. I found them like this, enjoying pancakes this morning. I just had to snap a picture while they were distracted! Ronny has been gone for the last 10 days on a business trip in Europe and I have been sick the last 5 days of that trip. We are sooo excited for his return tonight. Things usually go much smoother while he is gone but with this nasty cold I have been hibernating as much as possible. The kids are so independent now that they take everything in stride. We know Ronny has to leave again next month for another long trip back overseas but we enjoy the time while he is with us and the kids enjoy talking to him on the computer.
