This morning our little home got a little quieter for a little while.
It will be a few months before we hear little footsteps running down the hall again,
Or pick up countless toys from the floor.
We will surely be missing the Minecraft updates and Youtube videos.
I’ll be missing my sous chef.
Dan will be missing his football buddy.
The little ones are back off to school,
And we are definitely feeling the blues.
The weather will be warming up,
And we will be adjusting to life just the two of us again.
But we had a great break.
We got to make lots memories that we will cherish forever.
During my times of sadness from missing them I will remember the hugs and the kisses.
I will remember how I would hold Farrah even when my arms burned from her weight.
I will remember how I laid and giggled with Noah about silly things even though it was past bedtime.
I will remember the blue sparkle fingernail polish and the unicorn bath bombs.
I will remember the orange toy gun and the hair that never falls into place.
I will remember singing and laughing, snuggling and tickling, cooking and doing yoga, and all times we shared and all the ones to come.
I will be thankful for what we have.
