gone for the summer

Posted on June 3rd, 2012 by mountain girl  |  4 Comments »

Our last few days have been spent soaking up the sun, wind, and our remaining time with Caleb.

This morning he boarded a plane, we said our goodbyes, and he’s gone for the summer. He’s spending his vacation in New Mexico with his mom, and possibly working his first summer job. He has high hopes of saving up enough to buy a go-kart frame.

We roused a certain sleepy someone out of bed and she came along to say goodbye, jammies and all.

She acted silly, but inside she was one sad little girl. She told me later, “I’m going to miss him a lot in the past following weeks.”

So we’ll be keeping ourselves busy and trying not to think about missing Caleb too much. And when he comes back, we’ll have a brand new baby, and our girl will be a 5-year old.

Have a great summer, Caleb!
