So, yesterday the older boys arrived home from spending the week at Grandma and Grandpa’s house. Last week the younger boys had their turn. Other than fifteen minutes of transition time, the boys have effectively had two weeks apart from one another. They definitely needed the break.
None of them are willing to admit being happy to see one another but that’s okay. I know they really are getting along well. No need to ruffle any feathers by making them talk about feelings and such. If nothing else, the dog is downright joyful to have her pack together again. Poor baby…life just hasn’t been right with half the kids gone.
