Two Weeks

Two weeks to bond

One is three
One is thirteen
Both speech delayed - for different reasons

One has a full-time dad
One doesn't

One is chasing, laughing
One is being chased, screaming

Two boys in the lake, heads bobbing
The little one's arms around the bigger one's shoulders
The little one screaming his name repeatedly -- almost perfectly

One will leave
One will stay
Both are in my heart -- forever.

Made me sniff.

The boys look wonderful together.
So nice they have each other, and these memories.

Summer is too damn short.

(Are you in the Nashville area? We're gonna be around in a couple weeks.)

This made me cry... here's hoping the best for your family, and lots more hugs, chasing, and laughter in the near future. Hope things work out in your favor.
