Having been out of town without Luke for the past week, this has been my theme song for the last couple of days:

While it's always so good to visit my family in Colorado, I am always excited to get back home--most especially when Luke is unable to make the trip with us. 

It doesn't help that we are right in the middle of soccer season, and Luke has been traveling here and there for the past couple months...and for the next couple months.

Speaking of our trip to Colorado, it was really great.  There are always a handful of stressful family moments, but overall we had a wonderful time.  I love seeing Augustine play with his cousins.  He and his cousin, Tavian, are only 9 weeks apart--they were a riot to watch, playing and dancing together...and fighting over toys!  We also spent a lot of time at my sister, Sarah's, house, and Augustine made himself totally at home among several other children running around.  We spent three afternoons at the pool and had big, family dinners on most nights with all three of my sisters and their families and my Dad.  Watching my niece twirl her baton in a 4th of July Parade was also a highlight. 

I am excited to one day live there and to be able to join in on family festivities all year-round.  {FYI, we hope to make the move to Colorado in about a year and a half...of course, it's not set in stone, but it's our "plan"}.

But for now, Virginia is "Home Sweet Home," and we are happy to be back.

  1. I know how you feel. Visiting family in another state is always so bittersweet. I love Colorado, but I miss my family back in Missouri.
