When you hear four days, it doesn’t always seem like a long time. We all love the four day weekends, right?
For me, four days is the amount of time that will go by before my Elliott comes home.
In have never been away for Elliott for four days. To be honest, I’m not sure how well I will handle this. I know he’s going to be safe and I know that he needs this.
Having said that, it’s four days.
I know we can all use a break but holy crap, I don’t know that I’m ready for him to be gone for that long. I’m a big softie. I cried at his preschool orientation and after dropping him off for his first day of kindergarten.
Elliott and I have a very special bond and I will miss him terribly but at the same time, my heart is happy because he’s going to have such a wonderful experience.
Here are some parting shots from his departure.
You all know Elliott but have probably never met my parents. Well, meet my parents. 🙂

I'm sure he'll have a wonderful time. He looks so cute in the pictures.
He looks so happy! Just think. He won't have to compete with anyone for attention. The focus will be all on him. And the best thing of all…he will be so excited to see you again and he will have so much to tell you! (You're such a good daddy!)
