However, leaving them behind doesn't come without the bittersweet feeling that we'll miss something. Something big. Something small. A step forward, a good decision, a hilarious comment. We just have to trust that my family (who'll be holding down the homestead for us) will keep accurate track of how our brilliant children develop while not under our watchful and encouraging eyes.
Like how both kids were fascinated by the dry ice packed into our CSA delivery last weekend.
May your weekend be as big and as small as ours.
