We're back from a great trip to see my parents. We had a great time and, believe it or not, it wasn't even hot! My hometown even got the best rain they've had all year while we were there. It was wonderful!
On the drive home, we dropped Jonathan and Elizabeth off at Eric's parents' house and they are going to stay for the week. They were so excited and had the biggest smiles possible on their faces as they waved good-bye to us as we pulled out of the driveway. It's hard to cry about leaving them when they are so incredibly happy!
So, today is just me and Gustin. And the rain. Tropical storm Edouard has made his appearance so we'll be staying indoors and watching the weather.
It's funny because I feel like I've been transported back in time about 5 years to when Jonathan was a year old. Back to the time when it was just him and me all day long. It's wonderful to be able to give Gustin some good one-on-one time like Jonathan got, but it's also lonelier and much quieter around here than I am used to. Oh, I miss my big kids already! But I'm not. going. to. cry. Even though the day is wet and gray and far too quiet...
I better go grab Gustin and get a big dose of his smiles to chase away these blues that are coming on. Have a wonderful day, everyone!
