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.
