once upon a weekend

The days are ticking away quickly now, and though we’re in an impossible heat wave, we’re doing our best to enjoy these dog days of…fall? But seriously. I’m less than 3 weeks out from the Chicago Marathon, we’re less than two months until Ryan comes home (I won’t be advertising exact dates), and we are going to be busy, busy, busy these coming weeks. So, this weekend, we did our best to enjoy what we have around us here in NNY, starting with a day at the Theresa Fall Festival, and our very last Blizzard Barn treats of the season!

These little men have been having a bit of a hard time lately. There have been a lot of feelings in the Moore household, and I think it might be, in large part, because they’re confused about Daddy’s absence. I’ve made a point throughout this deployment to avoid too much talk about Daddy being gone because Spencer seems to dwell on it, and he gets really confused. He’s told me more than once that Daddy lives at “Daddy’s house” now, and that’s “very far away.” 

Now that we’re getting closer to the end of this deployment though, we’ve been able to Facetime Ryan a bit more, and I think it’s confusing Spencer a little bit. He was really upset both yesterday morning and this morning when Daddy couldn’t talk on the phone, and dropping him off at daycare was especially awful today. Deployments with little ones are no joke, friends. These kiddos bear the brunt of it.

But, I digress. We did our best to remain distracted this weekend, so Sunday we went back to Old McDonald’s Farm in Sackets Harbor, and the boys had a blast again. Despite the fact that it was 85 degrees yesterday, we did our best to get out there and soak up the sun because the next few weekends are going to be fast! We’ll be in NJ next weekend, then we’re just two weeks from Chicago!

It’s about to get crazy around here very quickly! I hope you all had wonderful weekends 🙂
