It’s been far too long but I wanted to share a few pics.
For a couple weeks, Keegan has been showing interest in his Thomas the Train bed. Most times it’s been a fun play thing but recently when I lay down with Kai in his McQueen bed and read books, he will get in his bed, pull the covers up and be all smiles:-) But if we … Continue reading
So much going on it was all too easy to not post because it took time I just didn’t have and now it’s overwhelming to get started again because there is so much to tell. So instead I’ll just start posting a few photos here and there and occasionally do some writing. To summarize though … Continue reading
I am sorry I haven’t written an update since the early evening of day 1 as a family. Shortly after our last update (which mentioned both kids were sound asleep nice and early), Keegan awoke and we had some very difficult grieving begin.

We arrived (a bit late) yesterday late afternoon. The weather was pretty windy and rainy and by the time we checked in to the hotel, we were just tired (still are). I’ll write another post about our trip here, some thoughts about how Kai is handling this trip (he’s struggling a little more with time … Continue reading
We got our 2nd travel call – Keegan, we are coming! Still working out hotel details but airline is booked!
Our new, dear friends have shared their post about the 2nd playdate we had with our children. It was really heartwarming for me to hear her experience because it was like hearing the same great story told from the perspective of another character. Reading about how Owen’s cautious nature with the water fountain and how … Continue reading
