This weekend was definitely FULL of emotions. I made it through the week with enough energy, but then this weekend just seemed exhausting. To start off the weekend, Saturday marked a year since our first little baby passed away. I don't mean to dwell on it, but the memories definitely still fresh in my mind. It also made me focus on our growing, and kicking, baby that I'm responsible for right now. I get excited about meeting her every day, but also every day I have to leave my worries and anxieties at the cross. And although I miss my other little baby, whoever it may have been, the time is now! And God gives and God takes away and we just have to trust him.
Also on Saturday, it was kind of cool because on the anniversary of loosing our other little one, we were able to capture the moment with our little Sara. There's a walnut grove down in Lompoc that we drive by, and every time we do I always say "That place would be the perfect spot for pictures." So I found an awesome photographer and we set it up. Here is a little teaser of what she did. I'm SO excited about them. She's also going to do some newborn ones when the baby gets here. :)
Saturday morning, we were able to be entertained by the Space Squadron as they sent up another rocket. Jason and I have seen several launches so far, but none from the very beginning. The day was fog less and sunny, so we traveled down to a good spot to view it from. It just made me smile how many people were around us watching the launch. It just showed a strong sense of community and support. It was cool. So here we all are, spoiled, standing next to the crashing waves of the beach, on a sunny morning, and watching science happen before our eyes. It was pretty awesome.
So clearly, it's been a busy, and emotional weekend. Therefore... I wish I could take the day off tomorrow. But, we'll plow through it and do the best we can!
