August 1, 2011

Is it August ALREADY?!?!  I feel like the first 7 months of 2011 were a blur.  So much going on.  So much to catch up on.  Let’s start with this….

Saturday, Steve and I drove the children to the NC/VA border to hand them off to Steve’s parents. 

Are you smiling? 

Are you “happy” for us? 

We are happy that they get to spend time with family but not happy they are both away.  For the past 10 years, we have had at least 1 if not 2 children in our house.  We aren’t sure how to act.  We had a very uneventful ride, a few minutes to hug and kiss and then off we all went.  Of course I had my camera with me.

Breakfast at McDonald’s.  Silly girl had pancakes without syrup just so she could in the car!


My new favorite picture of Steve.

Then they both napped since we stayed up WAY too late!  I don’t think Nate ever really slept but Sarah was out like a light.

We won’t see them (other than on webcam) until the 13th.  I think we will all be changed after these 2 weeks.

First change… Nate lost a tooth at 10:30 the first night.  Really?  Really?

I miss my babies.

A big change indeed!! I give you credit for letting go of them that long :) Brian's mom mentioned taking Drew for 10 days in August and I'm not sure I could handle the seperation and not knowing he is safe at every moment. I've only been away from him for a total of 2 days/1 night. Neither Brian or I were ready for it. I don't think it's going to happen because she hasn't mentioned it again. But it was scary just thinking about it. Maybe next year he'll go and I'll be ready. Who knows. The pictures are great! They are both getting so big! I found some pictures, not that long ago, of Nathan when he was 2. He looks so tall and so big now. Hope you and Steve enjoy your vacation and quiet time!
