It used to be that I flew out to visit in the middle of his time away and spent a long weekend with Hunter. Now he calls me frequently and later this week we will have a Skype date. (For you non-Skype users…Skype is one of my essential tools for working from home. Free video calls via your computer.) Skype is also a must have when you travel on business and want to chat with your kiddos at home and see their faces. Skype is also a necessity when your 12 year old son has been gone for ten days and you miss him terribly.
People ask “Are you used to Hunter being gone?”
Are you kidding? I am his mother. No, I am not used to it.
Plus, it is a new thing for Elizabeth who just wants Hunter’s “trip” as she calls it to be “all done”.
While we miss you greatly Hunter James, we are happy to hear your voice when you call and about your fun adventures you are having…(like going to a Mariners games tomorrow night!) But when you come home soon, I will sleep peacefully again knowing all my kiddos are sleeping soundly in their beds in our home.
