This past week the Sabourins were scattered. Elijah and Priscilla went to Tennessee with my parents and had a wonderful time visiting my grandma, aunts, and cousins. Troy and I spent a relaxing few days in Upper Michigan with Ben and Mary, taking long walks, celebrating our 11th anniversary, watching fireworks, and partaking in pleasant conversation with his parents and sister, Carrie. On Saturday, Benji had finally had it. Despite having access to parks, the beach, and our full attention, he firmly declared that it just wasn't right to be seperated from family. Last night, we finally reunited and I was pleasantly surprised to see how happy my kids were to be together again! I am certainly aware that the novelty of each other's presence will wear off in approximately fifteen minutes or so, but I'll sure take those fifteen minutes and fully revel in them.
