Kite's in HB

I feel like I have not blogged in soooooo long! Well, we were doing so much stuff for Pa's funeral that trying to juggle everything took a toll on us. Everyone in the family just kept saying, "make it to Thursday, make it to Thursday and Friday will be different." Well, it was different. No more going to the doctors, going over to the house to help take care of him...but then, no more Pa:( We are very sad about Pa's passing and so far there has not been a day that goes by without Drew saying, "I miss Papa." Aren't kids just so sweet! It breaks my heart to think of my husband and what he has to be feeling inside. But for all of those that would think Derek would keep it all in, he has not. I am so proud of him for sharing what he is feeling. My mom took these to share with family that could not be there.

With that feeling of loss I think Derek has found a new desire in life. He wants to do more with 'our' family and frankly so do I. Life is not just about work or being so busy that we are walking on a thin line to exhaustion. So one of the first things we did as a family was to go and see KITES! It was down in HB a few weekends ago and was so much fun! There were a bunch of kites and for all people who know how things like to fly at my head....yep, a kite almost took me out as it was dropping down!! Derek was cracking up because I was just sitting there!!!
