absence




dear dad:

it's been a long 4 days
of your absence.
we miss your laugh,
we keep setting your place
at the tea party,
we wish you were here
to make airplanes out of spoonfuls of food
clear out of the kitchen and back,
we keep setting aside
your game pieces for you,
we're tired of talking
on skype,
and we've got 2 little 
ballerinas over here
just ready to attack.

welcome home!

It's amazing how one missing peice can spoil the picture. Or one absence family member can be so missed. But isn't great fun when we are all back together again.
Happy family.

I think I always leave the same comment on you blog - sorry. You are a MASTER at capturing moments with your camera. Your pictures say a trillion words.
