Grandma, Aunts, Uncles, and Cousins
The worst thing about leaving Nebraska was parting with Ben's family. The boys had become so very close with his mom and it was wonderful to see her on a regular basis. Nathan used to rush the door with arms wide open whenever he saw her coming up to it. She used to catch him up in her arms and say, "You do a lot of good for an old grandma!"
We miss you, Jill. It did a lot of good for us to be near you, too.
We grew close to Eric and Julia, as well, and fell in love with "Graham Graham", as the boys used to call him. He's the sweetest kid on the planet! Once when he was over playing at our house, he said to me "You so fun A-kuh!" Made my day. It would have been great to let these boys grow up together.
Here are the boys camping out for Friday movie night with more of their cousins. This was a favorite event and has now become a weekly highlight in our family.
How else could we get them to do this??
