Oh. My. Goodness.
I missed these two little boys. (And the dog.) Like whoa.
I didn’t expect to miss them as much as I did. But there’s lots of things going on in our lives right now. With my paternal grandmother having just passed, my maternal grandmother’s health declining, and other things just going on, the importance of being with my boys feels of the utmost.
Eight days without them felt like an eternity.
They obviously grew 87 inches in the time we were apart.
They also missed their dog while we were gone. The dog spent time with my brother and his family. Today we had a special dinner out, spent time outside when we got home. The dog ran circles. The boys played with swords and battle axes and chased each other in the setting sun.
Our little four person immediate family unit came back together and we are better for it. We only have 22 days left of our summer break. We’re going to make the most of it, that’s for sure.
Oh, and a conversation from today:
“Don’t sit on your notebook.”
“It will smell like BUTT.”
*all the giggles*
