Looking Back

Tonight I'm feeling a little emotional. Just for the moment. It's actually been quite a good day. My boys are headed up to Idaho for 3 days tomorrow. Marshall has a convention in Salt Lake, and will be staying downtown for 3 nights. I have work, school, a cpr class to take, a bunch of errands to run to get stuff ready for next semester's clinicals and get a passport for our trip in December, so it made sense that they go spend some time with their grandparents so we didn't have to do a ton of juggling. Since Chandler was born almost 5 years ago, I haven't been away from my boys for more than a night trip. Why is it that when I constantly feel like I need a break, I feel really sad that they are going to be gone for 3 days? Of course they will have a great time. 2 nights at Puppy & Papa's (My parents, the puppy name is a long story), and one night at Gma & Gpa Snedaker's house. So as I sit here, thinking that I should go to bed, I've been looking back on old videos and pictures. Looking at the first year of the boys, it makes me the tiniest bit baby hungry....for about 3 minutes. It's no secret that we are waiting until I am done with school to try for #3, so it will be a few years before there's a baby in this house again. (Plus, if you are ever around my VERY active boys, you would understand our waiting even more.) Anyways, I just wanted to share a few of my favorite pictures of my cute little guys....just so you all can reminise with me. Then maybe I'll cry for a moment or two (I'm tired.) and call it a night.

They grow up fast. My first time away from the girls was my trip to Peru 4 years ago. It was hard initially, but went fast.

You have some great little guys there.

Aww! I remember when you first had Chandler and I would just stare at him during church amazed at how cute he was. You guys make cute babies, it will be a great day when you get your third. And, until then you get to soak up all the baby left in those sweet boys one day at a time.

I know it doesn't matter, but I hope your next is a girl. Older brothers are so sweet (not that I ever had one - but my boys love their sis.)
