Mr. 22 arrived home yesterday and it has been a fun 28 hours so far. Yesterday he went to PT with us to watch Little Buddy, and last night we went out for pizza. Today we went to the beach and in the pool. Little Buddy is beside himself and told his oldest brother he could never go away again, ever! I feel the same way even though I know he will go back to Ohio just as he should. He has his degree to finish, a new lobbyist internship to start and a darling girlfriend he adores. Oh to be 22 again and have your whole life in front of you, of course there is always fear in how you will succeed in your life, but for now I think his life is pretty darn good.
Little Buddy has so much fun with Mr. 22. He adores him. He really loves Mr. 19 too of course, but as we know Mr. 19 is quieter and very steady, Mr. 22 is like a wild ride at an amusement park. Little One needs both of them in his life and they have both stepped up and loved this little boy of ours, which makes me so proud of them. They play with him and take care of him. Mr. 22 has to do it in limited time, only when he is home so he really tries to spend time with Little Buddy when he can. Mr. 19 is leaving for college in August, he will only be 2 1/2 hours away so we will see him more often than my son who lives in Ohio. Little Buddy will need those visits so he can still feel connected. I am so blessed to have these wonderful boys of mine, that includes Max too of course!
Hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend. Tomorrow Mr. 22 leaves for a short camping trip with his oldest friends, Mr. 19 arrives home from Indiana where he is visiting his girlfriend. I plan on catching my breath before I work Tuesday-Friday next week. There will be pool time with Little Buddy and hopefully a bit of knitting. Have a great weekend.
