This past weekend, we were blessed to be able to spend some time with my cousin Amy. Of course, I know Amy and her family well, so I already loved her and was excited about having her come to visit. However, after 4 1/2 days with Amy, the rest of my family fell in love with her too! I think Brooke thought that she had a new sister, a new big sister. I was ironing Amy and Brooke's dress for church today, and Brooke was watching me....."Whose dress is that? It is super big?" Well, I guess in comparison to Brooke's dress, Amy's would be "super big." Brooke and Amy both had "cozy blankets", so they would both sit on the couch and read their books. After dropping Amy off at campus this afternoon, we came home and the minute we got out of the car, Brooke said, "I miss Amy already!" When we got in the house, Wesley hung up her name on the fridge. "I miss Amy because you and dad are too big and busy, and Andrew and Brooke are little and like to whine, but Amy is just right." Well.....there you have it, wisdom from the mouth of an 8-year old (?). Anyway, you look at it, WE MISS YOU, AMY!!!!
Michelle, I am just getting caught up on everyone's blogs. We sure miss you guys! Looks like you had a fun Thanksgiving. That was so nice that you could have Amy join you. We are having fun with your mom and Aunt Juliet. I feel so guilty watching them work while I sit on the couch! They are definitely going to go home tired :)
Cousins are the best, aren't they? Sounds like your kids really enjoyed Amy - it reminds me how OLD I am, since I remember when Amy was Brooke's age! I think it's great for you to be her family close-by!
Talk about feeling old. Gary and I lived by them, and I taught at their school (South Haven) when Amy was in third grade---the same as Wesley now is. That kind of surprised me :) And, yes, cousins are the best!!!!
