Lessons

Lessons of the week...

Getting 3 children to look at the camera, smile and keep their hands off their faces(meaning, out of their noses and mouths!), all at the same time is something to celebrate! There might have been some bribery involved.


I'm still not too old to play on the top bunk of the bunk bed with my 3 little loves. We played, danced and laughed our hearts out yesterday. I had the time of my life...I think they did too.


Letting go doesn't get easier...my heart is aching for these two...my arms are aching to hold him one more time...to kiss those cheeks one more time...to see the way his eye's light up at the sight of me...one more time.



...but, one more time, will never be enough.
Lesson learned...laugh, love and live life to the fullest, every chance you get, with those that share your days.

It was such a fun day with you mom. I am so blessed to have you in my life! Leaving was so hard, and as I walked away from you at the airport my heart broke. I am so glad that we had such a wonderful last day together. I know that you made the kids day dancing with them, but you also made mine. I loved every minute of it!
