So many new things...

Sorry I don't have any pictures for this post, but it has been FOREVER since I've posted so I wanted to update y'all of some new things going on in our lives....
First off last week, my Mom had the boys ALL week in Georgia. The hubs and I stayed home to work and reconnect as a couple. It was such a blessed week, it seriously could not of gone any better. I was able to do what ever I wanted to do, so was he and mostly everything we did was together!!!! Y'all it seriously was so much fun, in the 6 years we have been married, it was the first time EVER for our kids to be gone more than one night, and we got five free nights together, I swear I thought we were dating again! (I had to pinch myself a few times to make sure I was not in heaven... it was blissful!) When the boys got back home on Saturday, I really realized just how much I missed them! They are our life and we would NOT want to even be alive if they were not in it with us, I told hubs last night, I said "Our life before the boys was probably the most boring life ever... it seems they have always been in our life and I don't want it any other way!!!!" So, last week was much needed for myself and our relationship, but gosh I'm so glad to see my angels in their bed at night sound asleep... nothing else in this world matters more!!!!!
Today is the first day of summer camp for the boys at our church. Typically Will is my super shy child and Luke is my wild monkey! The whole way to church Will kept saying he was really nervous because he didn't know who would be in his class and he asked me "Mom is it ok for me to be shy" I tried to reassure him everything would be fine, I said in the car " Luke has nothing to worry about because he does not stop running his mouth for anything so he will meet new friends real quick" We all laughed about that and were having a great morning. I get there and drop them off, Will walks right in and starts hanging out with these boys at this table (I am so proud of him, this is seriously a big step for him because if he does not know anyone, he won't speak, poor child got that from me) but Luke on the other hand, walked right in his classroom, but when I was walking out, I saw him balling his eyes out, I stayed a extra 20 minutes with him trying to get him feeling better. Finally I just had to leave... this part about being a parent sucks so bad! Y'all it has been 2 hours since I dropped him off and I'm still so upset about him being upset. He's not my child that gets upset like that, so I'm a basket case today :( The whole way into work I just prayed that God would comfort his heart and I will be there at 3 to pick them up... just please God protect them until then!
I called and they both are doing great so I do feel better, but Lordy, the things we go through as parents!!! Not all of our church families go to this camp, so not all of their church friends are there and there is a lot of new kids in the community that go here during the summer time, so that is why it's a little bit different! I'm sure they are having a blast, I sure pray they are!!!
I hope all of you are doing great, we are getting ready for summer, doing yard work, getting my house in order and just trying to stay organized lately! Hope y'all have a marvelous Monday!

Aww poor baby...I bet he will be smiling from ear to ear when you pick him up though!

That's so nice you and your hubby got some quality time together. That is very important for relationships....Terence and I have been married almost 9 years so we had a lot of just US time before Connor just came and now our world has been rocked upside down! In a GOOD way though! I already can't imagine life without this child...he just completes each day! God is so good and His blessings are abundant! The boys will fall into place...I know it's hard to leave them, especially when they are so upset. For a long time Bonnie and I would ONLY talk to each other! My Mom had such a hard time getting us to talk to other kids! As we got older though it was easier to socialize and we began to feel more comfortable around others :)
