Yesterday was a Tough Day....

Well, it was time to say goodbye to Joey yesterday. We knew the time was coming, but it did not make it any easier on any of us. Jerry said his goodbyes the night before since he had to work. Then Joey went with me to take EE to daycare. That in itself was hard on everyone except EE since he wasn't quiet sure what to make of it.

Joey and I had an hour to kill, so we went swimming. Then it was time to do some last minute packing and off to get something to eat we went. We drove 45 minutes to Hobby airport and checked in. As we waited we talked. When it was time to leave we both got emotional. He hurried onto the plane and I started bawling. When I finally left the airport I was still crying. I had no idea that it was going to affect me as hard as it did. I mean. I knew it was going to be tough, but we get closer every time he comes. This time especially we bonded.

When it was time to pick EE up, it broke my heart. EE cried like he lost his best friend. He sobbed for 30 minutes straight and there was no consoling him. I cried right along with him. It broke both mine and Jerrys hearts to see him that way. Jerry has been very upset and has pretty much been sad and withdrawn. It always hits him hard when his boys leave.

We miss Joey. :( He is such a good kid.

Fun in the Sun

This morning we woke up and went to the beach! Eunice and Boo went along with us. We spent the day swimming and digging in the dirt. Joey and I even came out of it with battle wounds. We both got attacked by crabs. That doesn't sound good does it! LOL Mine got me on the bottom of my foot and broke the skin. I totally freaked out and wouldn't go back in the water for about half an hour. Joey's crab got him on the leg. He handled it a whole lot better than I did. Joey also spent time trying to catch tiny fish that were getting washed up with the tide and swimming back into the water. It was a riot to watch him. You can see the pictures below. He was even using a bucket. He was so determined. Of course, I was right out there with him trying to out do him! LOL. All in all, we had a really fun day...and all 3 boys had a blast.

2 Brothers

Joey came in on Saturday and Ethan was beside himself with Joy. He ran around the room, smiled, screemed, and hugged Joey like there was no tomorrow. He has really REALLY enjoyed having him here. They have bonded as brothers do and Joey is so good with them. We have spent time at the pool, played in the yard, Jerry and Jo have gone to the movies, and today we went to a resort to have a dad of fun. Here are some pictures.
