My 1st Tears

I know I just posted about our big fun family weekend but this one deserved its own post.

As I said goodbye to my little nephews tonight, I cried my first set of tears. As most of you know, I am not a crier and it takes a lot for me to show that emotion. My tears are more out of anger that any other emotions.

Saying goodbye and knowing how much bigger they will be the next time I see them just brought tears to my eyes and I practically ran out the door to get home. Saying goodbye to adults I do not see all the time was not as hard this weekend as it was to say bye to the little boys. Lucas will get to stay at my moms from now on when he comes to visit. Alex n Eggroll will be back at Christmas but I know from watching my own kids, these 3 boys will grow up fast.

I am sure there will be more tears as we have less that 2 weeks till we move......these just caught me by surprise.

Well my first tears about you leaving are now. With everything that has happened to me over the last month, your moving hasn't seemed real (or at least coming soon). Reading this post makes me realize how soon you are leaving. I wish I were healthier to have more time to spend with you before you left. I am so proud of you guys and am so excited for you. I will be praying for you and missing you terribly. Watch for cheap plane tickets to come and visit!
