As I type this, Cooper is screaming “STOP!!!” as Jeremy pins him to the ground. Chase is squealing with laughter. Cooper has been requesting a wrestling match with Dad since almost the second he saw him. Much laughter is going on in this house this morning.
Today, both the boys were so excited to see that Jeremy was still here when they woke up. I love, love, love watching the looks on their faces as they realize all the things they have been missing. Chase knew Jeremy immediately by the way. Thank you Jesus and Skype.
I have had a lot of unexpected emotions with this homecoming. It’s been hard for me to let them out because it feels so weird that there is some sadness mixed in this. But the sadness is really just release of sadness I think.
Yesterday was an emotional day to be sure. But it was made so very wonderful by all our friends! Our small group all got up at 3:00 am so that they could be at the gym to wait with me at 4:00 am! I don’t think I could have made it through that morning without them. It was perfect. 😀 Thanks you guys. I don’t think you realize how much that meant to Jeremy and I.
We do have video of the early morning events-it’s long though so we will probably edit out the “boring” parts. 😀 It’ll be up soon.
In the mean time, Washington had a high of like 50 on Monday and 96 yesterday. Today it is supposed to be hot again, so I think we are going to try and go somewhere to beat the heat a.k.a. borrow someone else’s AC (or play in some water).
Here is a list of the things I love so far:
-waking up and seeing Jeremy there (at first I jumped a little)
-seeing Chase choose Daddy over me
-watching Jeremy melt at all the little antics of both boys
-having someone else make coffee and shut down the house at night
-already dreaming about what’s ahead
