Liam decided he was going to buy the Spiderman backpack he saw when we went school (VPK) supply shopping together with the $5 he received for his birthday (of course to go with his Spiderman lunchbox that he also received and loves). I took him, with his money, back to the store.
He tried on the backpack...then decided it was perfect; he did comment that some of the other backpacks that were for GIRLS, too funny...
When we got into the car, I marveled at this 4 year old, who insists on buckling his own seat belt. Such a great age, learning independence and the pride of accomplishing things!
He would not take his backpack off for some time. He played train (the one he built with me) with mommy, giggling the entire time.
I left them this morning, and yes, I did cry, for quite some time as I drove away. I sure love my mountains, but I love my daughters and Liam too. I treasure my time with them...Liam is such a character, so loving, clever, funny and smart! And Erin and Jessi are adults and moving forward with their lives. I can't wait to see them again!
Thanks for reading my blog, you are the best f/f/r/s/f's, see you tomorrow,
