Two years, 3 days have passed since you were taken from us. Two years! At times it seems like forever since I've seen you, heard you saying Mom, heard your laugh.....

Then at times it feels just like yesterday I got the call.....the call that changed my world forever. You were gone....taken by a dare! A dare! I still have a hard time believing that. You were just finding your way in this world, excited about your music, your life and in a blink of an eye, a shot of gun, all of it was gone. For nothing....

I still look up into the clouds, hoping for a glimpse of you. I see shadows in the corner of my eyes, turn quickly, sure it's you. I wait for you to come to me in my see your smile, to hold you once more...if only in my dreams. I think of you every day, every hour. Our lives have gone on, we are getting older......but you will forever be nineteen.....nineteen.........

I miss you my first Samuel.....

Le'ts play catch-up, shall we?

Spring Break - we took the boys to Kings Dominion and to DC. I have tons of pictures, but it would take all day to edit and post. And really, I don't have all day!

Elijah wasn't feeling the roller coasters. He got on 2 or 3, but that was only because we made him. He at least had to try them before he decided he didn't like them. Ezekiel rode on all of them except one. It had been so long since I rode roller coasters! I was definitely feeling it by the end of the day.

The next day we went to DC to explore the museums and I got to meet my brother Edward (another post coming on that subject later)

While in DC we were told we need to check out Ben's Chili Bowl - the chili fries were the bomb! The hotdogs were hotdogs. Not too much different you can do with a hotdog.

We also rode our first subway. I don't know how people in NYC/big cities do this day in and day out. It would be good knitting time, but other than that, don't think I could do it.

So that was our Spring Break in a nutshell!

Since then, our life has revolved around work/school and baseball! Fonzy and the boys are all playing.






Phew! Now we are all caught up! That was quick huh?
