Since I am in this mood of posting about my children, here is what is going on this week.
Today, my Son leaves for a week long excursion with the school. He returns this Friday. I am trying to be strong and supportive of him. I am trying to let him know that I will miss him without totally showing the true way I feel, (which is like this):
I feel like 10 years old is a little young for a class trip, but what can I say. I would never not let him go. He is excited to go and be without us! I know that he will grow in this week. And I especially know that he is ready. He is a mature child and consistently shows us how responsible he is.
I was being strong and not crying until my daughter, who looks up to her big brother like he is the king of the world writes this note:
"I will miss you very much. I will be thinking about you. I love you." She draws a heart at the bottom and then another little image of a girl and boy holding hands.
I lost it last night. She is such a sweetheart.
We are all going to miss him, think of him and we all love him.
