Well, we finally did it.  Erik and I took a mini-vacation this past weekend. We had an amazing time with some amazing friends, but it was sheer agony leaving our kids behind.  I knew it was something we needed to do.  For me, for us and for Lucy.  We have been attached to each other for almost a solid year and we both needed to gain a tiny bit of independence.  Once we finally said our "good byes" and drove out of the driveway I started to relax. 

But let me tell you.  I have never been so happy in my life as I was when I walked in the door and my sweet children ran into my arms, all but knocking me to the floor.  Even Lucy was running.  The time away was enough to recharge our "batteries," but I don't plan on leaving my kiddos ANY time soon.  Home is where I want to be.  It's where my heart is.  Right here with my husband and children.  Right where we are now. 

Tomorrow we are back to a normal routine.  School, tumbling, St. Jude check up with Dr. W and laundry!  Tuesday Lucy is scheduled for a small procedure to change out her g-tube tubing to a Mickey button.  We are so excited for this change and it will give Lucy even more freedom. 

And thank you all for the prayers for my grandmother.  Your prayers were definitely felt and greatly appreciated. 

Signing off to go snuggle with my babies.  We have lots of lost snuggle time to make up for!
