A Very Sweet Weekend

This weekend we had the opportunity to spend some time with 3 out of our 4 children.  Since Jacob changed schools this fall, he and Josh are now only 45 minutes from each other.  It was so great to spend time with my kids!
My mom's heart was so blessed watching and listening to them interact with each other....not as children but as adults.  It was interesting listening to them share with one another their dreams and goals for their futures. 
I intend to take advantage of the fact that the boys are so close to one another. Once Emily leaves for Florida next year and Josh heads to grad school, these moments will get fare and few between (pretty much the way it is with my own brother and sister).  I need the time with them but they need the time with each other as well.
Yesterday Emily mentioned that she always misses Jacob.  Those two grew up together.  However, she's used to Josh being gone but she doesn't realize how much she misses him until she spends time with him.
It was a sweet time!!!!!
