So this is what it's like to be an only child
Charity and I made a quick trip home yesterday so that I could attend the viewing for the father/father-in-law of some friends of mine. It's so hard to see my friends grieving and I just pray that God would provide peace to them in this horrible time. My prayers are with you guys!
It would have been wonderful to stay through the weekend but there was no way I could make it work with my school, Michael's school and Eric's study schedule. Instead Charity stayed with Grandma and I'll go home sometime tomorrow (again) so that I can be home for my cousin's fiancee's bridal shower. Michael's last basketball game is on Saturday morning so he won't be going with me. I know the boy is going to miss playing ball but I think Eric will be glad to be done coaching. He loves Michael but dealing with eight 4/5/6 year olds is about to drive him to drinkin'. So in the meantime, Michael is getting a chance to see what life would be without Charity around. Frankly I don't think he's minding it too much. He gets all the attention and doesn't have to fight over which books to listen too. Eric set up the tent in the middle of Michael's bedroom so it looks like it will be high times for Michael tonight. I've put some final pictures of Michael socializing at basketball since I'll be missing the last game and won't have any to show off. Don't worry though - baseball starts in about three weeks!!
