Thicker than water

Blogging has been kind of sparse lately. It's not that I don't have time... I do. It's not that I don't have internet access... I do. I've been thinking about it, and I've decided it's that I don't have the emotional space. There's been a lot of change in our lives and there is going to be a lot more change before we are done. And I just can't quite sort through it to come up with any kind of cohesive thought to write about. And even when I do sort through part of it, I don't really feel like writing about it for all to see.

But here's something I can say. Though it was sad to leave, there are moments when I'm reminded that this is why we moved. Here's one of those moments:

My dad gives horsey rides to both kids and when he gives Jonathan a horsey ride, Elisa often joins in the fun. You can't quite see it in this picture but she has Itty on her shoulders and is following Papa all around the yard. I'm so glad that our kids have the chance to get to know their grandparents (and aunt and uncle too). That really is the reason we moved back and it's so good to be around our families again.
