We’ve had a glorious spring.  It’s been incredibly warm and we’ve loved being outdoors.  It doeasn’t even feel like MN.  Joe already mowed once.  The neighbors are getting their outdoor pool ready.  Seriously, mid-April thinking about the pool?  That just doesn’t happen.

Joe and I went to Desert Hot Springs for a few days and got back on Wed (4/14).  Nathanael stayed with Grandma, Grandpa, and Aunt Laura.  They all seemed to really enjoy one another’s company.  Nathanel seemed to do pretty well but we could tell by the 3rd day in (we were gone for 4 nights) his voice was started to sound a bit sad.  Joe and I had a terrific time but missed Nathanael tremendously.  We think that next Nathanael will be old enough to go with us.

One of the things I’m always having to stay conscience of is how Nathanael processes things.  Last night N and I went to Grandma & Grandpa’s for dinner.  He pretty much came unglued and was upset upset upset.  I couldn’t figure it out and he kept yelling daddy and that he didn’t want to go over.  It finally dawned on me about half way over that N thought I would leave him there while Joe and I went on another trip.  I assured him that it was just dinner and that we would be coming home last night.  All was fine and pretty much calmed down immediately.  It breaks my heart a little thinking about it and how much distress he was in.  I made sure that he knew that if he stayed at Grandma and Grandpa again (invariably it will happen) that we would talk to him about in advance and he would get to say good bye to us.  Sigh.

I need to upload some photos and will do so shortly.  We are still on a big hockey kick and play every day!
