Quiet hours

My house has been quiet lately.  Seriously quiet.  I have had only two children, girls to boot, home since Saturday.  My three boys went in two different directions with friends and family, causing our family to dwindle to four for a period of about 48 hours.

It has been really weird.  And easy!  And quiet.  Wait - did I mention that already?

My girls and I have enjoyed some much needed girl time while the boys have been gone.  We went shopping, we watched Little Women, we ate lunch out and and enjoyed late(-ish) night snacks.  I really soaked in the time we had together for talking and laughing and loving.

But I'll tell you what.  All that quiet aside, I really miss my boys!  One of my boys came home tonight and the other two will arrive tomorrow, and I am anxious to have our family together again.  Soon our house will be overflowing with noise, stuff, fighting and hugs.  And I can't wait.

I know this feeling!!!
I LOVE dividing them up and getting to spend focused time with some, minus the noise of the others, but oh how sweet it is when chaos is restored again and they all come home!
