That’s What Was Missing

I flew home with the twins on Thursday morning from Virginia and I timed my flight so that Amanda would just be arriving on her flight from Kentucky for the long Easter weekend. It’s always wonderful to have her home, but it wasn’t until the next night when I was setting the table for dinner – Baked Rigatoni with Tiny Meatballs that she’d helped me make that afternoon — that I realized how nice it was to be setting the table for 6 again. Then I realized what had been missing lately.


It was so nice to have her home.

She slept a lot, ate a lot, studied a little, and did everything with us. We went to lunch together on Friday and I took all the kids shopping and for haircuts on Saturday. It was just nice having all of my kids together, and it seems to happen less and less often. It’s one of the reasons I’m not going to Wyoming for the summer this year. Amanda will be grown and gone with a family of her own one day soon, (sooner than I’m ready at least), and I don’t want to miss a minute of her while I have the chance.
