Crazy Days

The past 8 weeks have been crazy busy with Matt's school schedule. Crazy busy for Matt who works a full work week and then goes to class Monday through Thursday nights and crazy for me because it's just me and Gabe while Daddy's away.

The first week are so were really hard because Gabe would get so sad when 5:30 would roll around and Daddy wasn't walking through the door. Because as much as Gabe's a mama's boy, he's sticks to Matt like glue when they're together.

To counteract our missing Matt (Daddy) we visit him during the week. Our favorite place to go is the park in Valley City where Gabe gets to see his Daddy,

go for walks on the path, swing on swings, have a snack and of course, climb in trees!

Visits with Daddy are just the best! And just a few more weeks until Daddy doesn't have class 4 nights a week!
My father used to play with my brother and me in the yard. Mother would come out and say, "You're tearing up the grass." "We're not raising grass," Dad would reply. "We're raising boys." ~Harmon Killebrew

I feel for you, friend! We just survived the first part of Joe's doctoral studies, which felt more like boot camp & included a week of him living on campus (seriously).

While it's hard, I'm thankful that we have husbands that work hard for their families!
