Dancin Machine

Rachel and I have been home without the kids for 4 days now.  And we have a week and a half left.
I’d be lying if I said I’m not enjoying the freedom at times.
Last night we went to the AIDS vigil together, and just decided to grab dinner after.  Then we could grab a movie or just go home.  No planning needed.
And nice.

But last night we also talked to them on the phone.
As we sat in Kianti’s, I cupped one ear to block out the sound as Caleb told me all about drawing a picture in the snow today of him and Micah and mommy and daddy and grandma and grandpa.
He asked me when we were coming back and told me he missed me.
Micah got on the phone and said Lord only knows what.

I sat there for a moment and thought about the fact that while it’s fun not having the kids for a couple days, I would MUCH rather be stuck at home with the kids not falling asleep when we tell them to than to not have them at all.
I can’t imagine life without them anymore…and don’t want too.
I LOVE being daddy.

I miss our kids like crazy already.

During Pastor appreciation month, somebody gave us a Ralph’s World CD for the kids.
All you have to do is turn it on and Micah’s eyes light up and he starts to really boogie.
He was a little camera shy when it started, but he warmed up real quick.
It’s not a short video, but I didn’t wanna take time to edit any out.  Besides, kept me entertained the whole time. ;)

Once again, I miss this little guy like crazy.
And yeah, I kinda miss that house too.

    Hey, can you believe that my comment was “a bit too short; go back and try again.”? Ha! That is a first!

    Your Mom would have gotten such a kick out of that video and I would have had to hear how smart Micah was, following all the instructions!!!

    Yeah, sometimes it’s nice to have a break. Here’s a little secret……you miss them like crazy and then when you pick them up, you are wondering about five minutes later why you missed them??? Just kidding (kinda). Hang in there, I know two weeks is a long time!!!

    Too stinkin’ cute. Have to admit “Dance Around” is one of my fave kiddo songs. Love dancing with Andrew to it.
