SS10 Arrives Today
DH, DD, and I are at my FIL's wedding today, so my parents drove out-of-state to pick SS10 up for his last two week visit of summer. My parents said it worked out well for them because they have long time friends in the same city that they have been wanting to visit.
So my parents arrived to BM's to pick-up SS. They couldn't find the house but SS saw their car drive by a few times and flagged them down. BM and GF both came out to say "Hello." My Mom said GF did all the talking while BM just stood there. My Mom said that GF handed SS two 12 pound weights, his emergency croup medication, and an insurance card to bring with him. The irony is, we already have BM's insurance card so I'm not sure why she sent another. My Mom said GF gave SS a big hug and kiss before they left, while BM just waved to SS, turned around, and just walked inside - no hug, no kiss, nothing. I can't say that surprises me anymore.
My parents stopped at a gas station on the way back and my Mom asked SS if he wanted snacks. SS said "CastleJJ always packs me a snack bag" (which I do). My Mom told him to double check his backpack, just in case, which he did and found his usual snack bag. SS said "See I told you! CastleJJ never ever misses packing a snack bag for me!" My parents said he has been super talkative and excited the whole trip home and can't wait to see everyone.
I am so hoping SS has a great visit with us and that there is no drama!
