1. I miss my kids.
My two oldest are gone this week with grandparents on vacation. I miss them greatly and they won't be back until Sunday. But I know they are having a great time and I'm glad they are having this chance to spend time with family.
2. Michael (my four year old) misses them even more than I do.
He's shed quite a few tears since they left yesterday afternoon and I'm sure there are many more coming. We've spent a lot of time singing songs (one of his favorite things to do) and one time even broke out a couple leftover chocolate Easter bunnies to make ourselves feel better.
3. Buck will miss them too.
Our neighbor's dog comes over to visit nearly every day and I know he will miss them being here. Amanda always feeds him a few treats when he's here and plays with him.
4. Now for the good news.
My vacation is coming up next week and I can hardly wait. I'm planning to work in the garden, plant flowers, rearrange the playroom and be crafty. We will probably take a few day trips as well although we haven't really planned any yet. I'm just looking forward to the change in routine.
