In the last week, I have witnessed a house go from foundation to an actual house, the #1 college team in the country go down and my baby growing up!
First the house. We like to go out to the new house every week to see if there are any changes. We went out about two weeks ago and the foundation was poured and our frames were in the street. We had some crappy weather last week so we figured they probably didn't get much done. WRONG! We almost drove the car off the road when we showed up on Friday. There it was in front of us, a whole house with walls and cut outs for windows. It was amazing and it just felt right.
After visting the house we flew out to Columbia, SC. It was time for a little Parents Weekend back at college. The weather, the company and the game were all perfect, it just felt right. We go back every year just to have a good time, we always want to see the Gamecocks win and boy did we see them win. The Gamecocks ranked at #19 took down the #1 ranked Alabama. It was amazing! I am still on a high from us winning and still have Sandstorm going through my head.
When we arrived home yesterday morning there was this Big boy standing in front of me. I know it had only been two whole days since we saw him but he looked older, taller and chubbier. I picked him up and all he did was put his head on my shoulder for five minutes - he knew how to make his mama melt. To greet his Dad he knocked on the door and handed Charlie his sneaker. He said "Hi, Daddy - here shoe." Charlie just smiled and gave him a big hug. We missed him so much, but it just felt right to be back home with him.
