It has been a sad day for me. Megan and Brian were suppose to come down yesterday for the weekend and take Quintin and Gabby home. They were having problems with their water and Brian worked on it all day and most of the evening. Megan called and said since she had to work Sunday night they would just meet me halfway today to pick up the kids. Gabby was ready to go home as she was missing her mom. Quintin didn't want to go home yet. He ask me last night to wake him up early this morning so he could play one last time before going home. I woke him up at 6 and he and Zake played till 8. When I had the van packed and told them it was time to go he asked me to wait. He went over to the goat pen and hugged each goat and called their name and told them bye. He told all the chickens, geese, ducks and bunnies bye. He went over to the dog pen and told each one of them bye. By that time I was a basket case. I was crying like a baby. Didn't help much that he came over and hugged me and told me when he grew up he was coming to live with me. I so wasn't ready for them to go home. When Megan and Brian were in the army Quintin and Gabby stayed with us several months when they were in the field or deployed. They were 3 and 2 yrs old at the time. I gave Quintin his musical bear he slept with back then and he was happy to get a memory. He doesn't want grandma getting rid of any memories! Guess getting older makes me clingy. But on a brighter note I have Zack and Julie here and though they miss their cousins they are outside playing in the sprinkler and having a good time. 2 more weeks and they will have more cousins to play with. Hope your weekend is a fun and blessed one.
