I am so glad to have my husband back after 10 days! He had the opportunity to go to Costa Rica for 10 days on a agricultural trip with my brother’s college. It was definitely an experience for them as I am learning, and it was tough being the keeper of the house for 10 days with Brayden! We missed him, but this was simply an opportunity that would never come up for him again. The hardest part was not talking to him every day. He didn’t take his cell phone due to the outrageous international calling fees and they didn’t have access to wifi every night, only about half of the time.
They visited dairy farms, hiked, zip lined, white water rafted, and 100 other things that I can’t remember. They had a really full itinerary and were pretty tired when they got home. They met a lot of really nice people there, ate some pretty good food, and stayed in some very interesting, rustic places. I can’t wait to see some more of the videos that Brandon got while he was gone.
Brayden and I survived- we stayed with some friends last weekend, and then my college roommate and BFF from Florida flew up for the week just to hang out. Thanks to her, the week went by faster! We ate with my parents quite a bit, did a little shopping, and relaxed. It was nice but I was SO ready to go get Brandon last night. We have never been apart for that long and I was just so thankful he was home safe and sound. I even cooked a big meal for him- I think he appreciated that!
Thankfully, my nausea is starting to subside- that helped immensely in taking care of Brayden on my own! My mom kept him for one night so Sheana and I could get dinner together, so that was a nice little break. He was so happy to see Brandon and hasn’t really left his side since last night. Boys…
