Just the two of us...

Marty flew in from the slope at 11:30am on Thursday and Blake flew to Colorado at 11:10pm to be with his family again. It's so nice to have Marty home but we miss Blake. It was so nice to have him here and I feel so blessed that we had that time with him. He's such a great kid. I want to say so much more about him, this experience, and all 4 of his parents, but I can't come up with the words to measure up to whats in my heart. We thank God, all 4 of Blakes parents, and Blake for the time we got to spend with him.

He and I went through his room on Wednesday and packed up everything - most going home with him but a few keepsake things went into a box I'll keep up here and give him someday when he's old. My mom did that for Ian and I and it is still neat opening those boxes and looking into the past.

I talked to him for a few minutes last night and he said he loved and missed us - I almost lost it. Although it's really gonna take some getting use to him being gone, it's good he's home now; he missed his family and is soooo happy to be with them again.

I wondered about you and how you would feel when Blake would leave. I'm so glad Marty is there with you.

Thanks fishtaxi, we've had a few emergencies pop up since he Blake left that has helped distract us but we're still missing him tons despite the destractions. It would have been sooo different if Marty was gone. I would hate to go through the blues all alone.
