I mentioned in the 4th of July post that the boys stayed up in Idaho for a week to be with both sets of grandparents. Although it's nice to have a break from my kids and some extra time with Marshall, I missed them so much. Marshall had a co-worker lose his 4 year old boy in an accident just over a week ago. He attended the funeral this week, and he said it made him realize that much more how grateful he is for the kids.
The boys came back home with my mom on Friday evening and it felt like I hadn't seen them in forever. They both looked older...funny how only a week can do that. Within hours of them being home, the house was a mess, and there was the sound of little feet running all around. I wouldn't have it any other way, life is precious.
