Who knows what the next month will be like-hopefully some emails like he was able to write on the way there, but possibly less. I may not be able to see him on this screen again for all I know. But it feels easier to miss him now. I'm practiced and have it down to a science, partly. Mainly, I feel like I can start rolling out a welcome mat of American soil. The week that took seemingly years to get here has finally arrived. By the time the 4th of July rolls around, both boys will be gone.
I have a feeling the fireworks that night will take my breath away.
