I'm really sorry for the post issue. I am quite sure how I got signed up for today's post (computer elf?) However, I am listed to participate so here is my late posting.
This weeks topic is Life. This is a topic that is hitting home this week. My son's little buddy that lived across the street just moved today to Baltimore Maryland.
Mason (my son) is 4 and Trevyn is 3. These guys were sometimes like oil and water but age 3 and 4 what could we expect?
They spent so much time playing baseball, hockey, and kickball in the backyard. Not to mention torturing Trevyn's little sister Emma.
We have been gearing up for this move for several weeks now by reading books about buddies moving and having pen pals however, I don't really think it has sunk in....until just a few minutes ago.Mason has been asking if he can go see Bosco (the dog). I said Bosco moved with Trevyn and Emma and he erupted into an insane amount of tears (we are talking I just fell down the stairs...or I have a concussion kind of crying).
So, apparently this little LIFE lesson is one that I was NOT hoping to cross with my children, but since my neighbors really didn't ask if it was OK with me or my family if they move (how dare they =) we are forced to address the issue!!!
I'm just about to buy a puppy to get him to stop crying. In an effort to remember what these guys loved to do, I am posting a couple of pictures of them, along with a little "LIFE" nugget that I love...."Don't cry because it's over; smile because it happened!
We will miss all of you!!! But that is Life!
