My brother Owen, his wife Angela and our nephew William made a really quick visit this month. Owen is going to be deployed in December for 6 months so this is the last time we will see him until at least July. William is 10 months younger than Samuel. That lands him exactly halfway between Samuel and Ellie. When they arrived we met them at the local dairy for an ice cream treat. From the second the boys saw each other they were inseparable.
After the two days they were spending here they were going to visit our extended families. Samuel was loving his time with his cousin so much that we let him go with my mom on their trip for the last two days of their visit. According to mom he kept going on and on about how it was the best day ever.
The time that I got to spend with my sister in law was precious. We got to have a couple of really great heart to heart talks. I am so glad that I got to have that time.
