I'm A whimp...I admit it.

Wade left town yesterday morning for Chicago... I sucked it up and made it through the 3 hour church block yesterday.I got up this morning and went about my daily chores. But I miss him. I know that I am a total wimp. I am definitely NOT one of those wives that deals well with her husband being out of town. I look forward to him coming home each night. I love the look in my boys eyes when they hear his truck pull up. I love the sound of their voices yelling "Daddy's home, Daddy's home!" I love the calm feeling he brings to our home and to my heart.

Moments like these make me especially grateful that he is a homebody; and that trips that take him away from us are very few and far between.

Thankfully he will be home tomorrow night and all will be right again.

It's good that you miss him. Wouldn't it be awful if you didn't!? But I feel the same way about Thomas. When he was traveling so much last year it was miserable. I don't sleep well without him, the kids aren't as well behaved, and 5:00-7:00 is torture! We need the daddies!

How sweet. Wade is lucky to have such a loving family waiting for him every night. That's what makes it all worth it at the end of the day.

Colby's smile says it all! He could not be more proud of that cake! Good job for you just letting it go and letting him have it his way. I still hint around to Koben to much for what I want. I need to learn from you. It looks way tastier than any super decorated cake Koben has had too! Your such a good mom!! Someday I hope I get there!!
