We survived our first week of Matt being back in school, but I have to admit that it was a little hard. I always get a little down when he goes back each semester and he's gone so much and the kids definitely miss him a lot too. He must have been able to sense our bummed-out-ness because Monday he was later than usual and the reason was: He stopped to get Alexa and me flowers! What a great surprise!
Alexa had been sleeping for hours already, but Tuesday morning Matt went to get her up and told her he had something for her out in the kitchen. I was downstairs getting ready but I could hear Alexa when she saw what it was.
"Those are for ME? I love them!!"
She was so happy. Then she started yelling for me to come upstairs so that I could take pictures of her and her flowers. :)
