payton just spent 1 & 1/2 weeks in idaho with grandma and grandpa. he's never spent more than a few days away before. he and i are almost completely attached at the hip so this trip was obviously going to be an adjustment for me. i really didn't think it would be hard for jackson or our friend armin to be away from him. armin comes over every day after school and several times each day i heard both of them talking about how much they missed payton. payton is the humor in all of our lives so it was a very quiet week. luckily he's back and things are back to normal, just the way we like it.
