Day 169: Routines and Baseball

Daniel left before 5 this morning so I was on my own getting myself and the kids ready. I managed to get the kids and myself out of the house on time and made it to work without too much anxiety due to traffic. 

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. 
Caleb had a great night and his team won 15-11. He almost had an in the park home run but he tripped over third base while running, so he decided to stay there instead of risking it. 
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. 
She's so peaceful when she sleeps!

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. 

Goodnight all.
