We went and picked T up today, so that he can stay with us for five days. We are so excited to have him here and the kids fell right back into their old routines tonight. There was LOTS of laughing and giggling and my heart is very very happy this evening.
T has known about this visit with us for a few days now, but the look on his face when we pulled into his driveway was priceless! The grin from ear to ear and the sparkle in his eyes is worth the six hour drive! He is here! We get him for five whole days! The Baby didn’t recognize us when we first walked into the house, but as soon as we started talking to him, his eyes lit up and he reached up towards me. We all held him and played with him and I thought about how blessed I am that even though I don’t get to raise him and have him at our house, I do get to see him and watch him grow up! I feel so lucky!
So, this weekend with T will be packed with swimming, favorite foods, and lots of playtime! Middle Girl wants to show T how she can ride a two-wheeler now and Only Boy wants to teach T how to play his favorite new card game. We’ll watch movies and eat popcorn at night and make a few new memories! This weekend will be fun! I’m so glad we get to have T with us for five whole days!
