It's been a long time since I've written a letter to you. I honestly just haven't really been in the mood to. Of course you know that I talk to you every single day, so I know that you're not feeling ignored. A lot of things have happened since my last update.
First, Mikey started school. He's officially a first grader now. Wow, how time flies! I had a hard time with him being gone for the first week, but it's starting to feel a little more normal now. He's doing a great job in his class, and seems to be enjoying this new "school life". Yesterday, he finally learned how to ride his bike without training wheels. As you know, he's just never really wanted to try, but yesterday he got the nerve and he's doing great!
With Mikey being in school, I've been spending a lot of one on one time with Jovie. She still likes to talk about you every day, and of course I encourage it. Your big sister misses you like crazy, but she is so happy that you send her little signals throughout the day. We saw the most gorgeous butterfly at the park the other day, and Jovie just kept yelling "Hi Carter...I love you!".
Mikey and Jovie both started Soccer. Mikey's playing on the big field now, and Jovie's starting out on the little field. Sometimes being at that park is a little difficult because I remember the few times that we were able to take you to the games. I'm so glad that you at least got that opportunity.
Well, I'm about to start a new phase of my life that I wasn't expecting for quite awhile. Jovie will be starting Preschool on Thursday, and I'll be all alone. It's only for a few hours, but I have a feeling those few hours are going to seem like eternity. I was supposed to spend that alone time WITH you....not missing you. I'm going to just have to talk to you a lot that day, I guess.
As always, we still miss you, we love you, and we will never stop. We're still keepin' on!
