I stayed busy for most of the day and broke away for a few minutes to chat with Daniel about some upcoming travel plans and ideas. We're tentatively planning our next 8 months and scheduling as much as we can when we can.
After we got home the boys left for baseball and Maddie and I cooked dinner and played. She also watched Mickey Mouse while wearing her "princess shoes" featuring Minnie. She is a hoot walking around in them.
Maddie and I enjoyed our chicken and sides and read a story about Goofy. I then gave her a bath, put her hair in a bun, and read her some llama llama books (her favorites lately). She was asleep within ten minutes of going to bed.
Caleb and Daniel got back home a little after 8. They ate, showered and then got items ready for tomorrow. My day will begin early so I'm sure it'll be nonstop for me.
This day has also brought on a lot of memories. Daniel's dad passed away 7 years ago. Caleb often talks about him and loves to ask questions and hear stories. Hearing Daniel tell stories is one of mine and Caleb's favorites. We all miss him dearly and we hate that we didn't have more time with him. But, we find solace in knowing that he's in a better place and we will see him again one day. Although the time has passed by, the memories and longing for a little bit more time with him still sits deep within us. I know we're not the only ones who miss him and long for more.
