A Year Ago...

I can hardly believe it was a year ago we moved back to Iowa! At the same time, it feels like we have been away from Minnesota for a long time now. I sure wish we could get back there more often. Sometimes when I go to mom and dad’s house t reminds me of how much the boys have grown up in one short year. When we moved they were all about taking their little stools to the light switch and turning the lights on and off. They are so much taller, they can see into the drawers. When I see them in their little toddler beds, they look like giants barely fitting in them anymore. Sometimes when I hear “Hey there, it’s Mickey….” From the beginning of Mickey Mouse it reminds me of when we first moved because that is when we first started watching that show. Dylan is still obsessed! I sure don’t miss our commute or our daycare in Ankeny. I have no idea how we managed to get out of the house by 6:45 every day! I got to have a taste of being a stay home mom for two months. I can’t say it went really well – I always wonder if the circumstances were different if I would have enjoyed it more. I was still adjusting to be back in Iowa, we weren’t in our own home, it was the dead of winter and some days we didn’t even consider going outside, I was a bit stressed with trying to sell our house, finding a new home and a job. So of course I would love to have that extra time with the boys again – just maybe in a different scenario.
