Sundays in My City--#2

The theme of today's post is things I'm going to miss over the next two months as I travel.

The kids were surprised that I included the dogs in this photo essay but they are a part of this home too.

Full disclosure: I'm not really going to miss this little guy. He steals fruit and eggs from my kitchen.

I'll miss all the kids so much....

their happy faces...
their little dances that are hard to capture on camera....

 their sleeping forms. I'll miss it all.

I'll miss my handsome husband as he teaches his classes. 
His love for and gift for teaching really comes through and I find it very sexy.

I'll miss my big kids and all their teenage loveliness...
...their cooking up new recipes (this was Reese's Pieces)...

...their quest for knowledge...

..their excitement over new things (like mustache hairs).

I'll miss the skies over Africa. The stormy ones full of drama, the sunny ones that look like the background for the Simpsons, and the sunsets that help you believe in God.

You knew I couldn't leave this one out. I'll miss his kissable cheeks and the giggle that makes it all worthwhile!
