The stage where he gets to learn how to read; the stage where he gets to eat lunch at school; the stage where he carries a backpack and is responsible for what is inside of it; the stage where he brings home stories about new friends that will accompany him through his elementary school years. A part of him will always be my baby boy, but I'm so excited to read the next chapter of his story. The last five chapters have been SO good!!

Tomorrow morning, I am flying away from home to spend the weekend at my sister's house. There are a few other places that I enjoy as much as my own home and hers is one of them. Life slows down for me when I am there. Normally, a visit to her includes my whole family, but this journey is a solo one. My bags (carry-ons of course) are packed, and I've been stashing magazines that have come in the mail this week saving them for my plane trip. I picked up a couple of my favorite candies because a ride on a plane just isn't as fun without a little sweet treat!! Daddy and the kiddies are going on their own adventure, so don't feel too badly for them. They will barely notice that I am gone. I am grateful for the days that we will spend apart, knowing that I need a break, and that hugging their sweet necks on Sunday will be a precious end to my weekend away from home. The truth is, I love home and the only remedy I have found for being home-sick is well... to stay home! But this mama bird needs to leave the nest for a short time and spread her wings for just a bit. And if you see a sunny smile coming from seat 16c tomorrow, that will be me. Relaxed, excited and probably missing my little peeps just a smidge. Maybe a little more than a smidge...
