I have to do a little comparison. This was when Reese was about Elynn's age now. Adam went to St. Louis for a 2 week training.
We dropped Adam off in ATL the Saturday before Labor Day. Who goes to an airport with 2 small kids and no stroller? Us. Amateurs. We had to be innovative. We used Adam's luggage until he boarded the plane. After that I found an airport wheel chair and pushed them in it.
We got gate passes and were able to go through security and stay with him until he boarded the plane.
There were a couple of days that things got kinda rough. They both cried for an extensive amount of time one night because they missed him.
He spent most of the 2 weeks at the Kronospan location in Bulgaria, but he also went to Romania for a few days.
Every meal Reese would say the blessing and end it with "and keep our daddy safe on his trip." So sweet. The time difference made it hard for the girls to talk to him, but he stayed up late most nights to be able to face time with them.
One night Reese started crying because she missed him and she said, "I feel like my daddy is far far away. Like not in Atlanta anymore." Oh baby. You are so right. Daddy ain't in Atlanta anymore.
But it was a happy happy day when we picked him up.
