Ruth and the baby took off this morning to head back home. It was so great to get to spend some time with them! I calculated it out this morning and realized that she and I have known each other for going on 22 years now. This makes me feel kind of old, but it also makes me happy that I've been able to be friends with such a fantastic person for so long.
Connor had a good day at school today, and then when we got home he kind of crashed. He may possibly be coming down with something, or he might have just been tired from the busy weekend. I guess we'll see.
I hit the grocery store while he was at school and snapped up some lovely ripe Fuyu persimmons, which I was delighted to see. My grandparents had a persimmon tree in their front yard, and I remember eating them straight off the tree like apples. I ate a few fresh today, and then peeled and cut up a couple, cooked them in coconut milk with a bit of palm sugar and salt and then ate them over sticky rice. They were pretty tasty like that.
It seems crazy that I can officially tell people we'll be traveling to Thailand next month! The days are just flying by. I heard back today from the travel agent we'll be using to help us get around the country, so that's one more thing crossed off our list.
In just five short weeks we'll be meeting our girl!
