When They're Gone, It's Sad!

Last week Chad was gone. He was at a conference in Massachusetts that the navy sent him to. We all hate having him gone and we miss him a lot, but we're also used to that, unfortunately. He came home last Friday. Vance is gone this week. He left yesterday morning at 5:45AM for scout camp. We're missing him a lot, too and we're definitely not used to Vance being gone. Our house just isn't the same without him. Chad will be going up to join him Thursday night. They'll both be home sometime Friday.

Next week everyone will be home and then the week after that, Myshel and Chad will be gone. Myshel will be going to girl's camp (hopefully) and Chad will be at another conference/school in Florida. That week will seem extra quiet with the both of them gone. There are days around here when it's so crazy that you wish you could send the kids to camp, but when they're gone, even just one of them, there's kind of a sad feeling hanging over the house! I'm glad I have a few more years to prepare myself for Myshel leaving for college!
