Moving on and moving away!
It is wonderful watching our family grow up and going on their own adventures in life. They definitely are moving on and while that is fun, some times the moving away is a bit harder to accept. This Friday we had the girls come over for the evening so that Mom and Dad could have a Date Night. It had been a week and so we were more than anxious to see them.
They were thrilled to walk in the house and see that Nana had already put up Halloween decorations. Jenny just kept walking around the living room and with her arms stretched out far saying " It's just Halloween every where...I love it! " Angie was just excited and made sure that I hadn't forgotten anything to put out, she found all the treasures that she has remembered seeing since she was little. It did my heart good to see how much they love all the seasonal decorations in our home. I know our kids loved it but, it is nice to see the next generation love it too. Since Kai is so far away in Boston, we made sure to send some Halloween stuff for him to have Mommy decorate their home.
Angie said to me while she was here " Nana, when we do our next sleep over we will probably have to come over a day before" I asked why? " Because Nana we live so far away now. Our house is in another state ( she meant city ) and it takes days to get here, a really long time, so we better come the day before". It did my heart good to know that I am not the only one that feels like they far, far away! Now that Angie is in school full time, that is even harder finding time to have them over, yes I guess they are really growing up. But they love their new home, friends and neighborhood so ... they have been blessed. I wouldn't have minded having a house that looked like this...
for our first home!
Then our little Kai and his parents just moved to Boston and they are loving it there. They love the beauty of it and all the rich history that Boston has to offer. Kai is happy no matter where he goes, I think alot of that is because Mom and Dad are so happy. He is growing up so fast, we get to go back there and spend a week with them soon, we can hardly wait. We will get to see their cute new place they call Home...
And we get to go see this sweet little boy of ours..
we are so excited to spend Halloween with them. What is it about the holidays that makes you want to bring everyone together to celebrate? I am grateful that we can at least spend some of them together ...as our kids grow up, move on and away!
Good night dear friends!
