Sad Day for Mom

So Tyson and Lauren left this morning for Seattle. They have to put their car on the ferry on Friday. And then Tyson and hopefully Lauren both get on their flight on Sunday. They are not sure about Lauren's flight yet. She may have to come back to Utah for a few days and then head out later. They will be so glad when they can get settled and be together. They have really spent more off their first year apart than together. I love them so much I am not really sure how I am going to make it through the next 3 years. It seems like a lifetime. But I am so proud of Tyson and what he is doing.
We took family pictures last Sunday. You know that I have to take about 15 pictures of Tyson to get 1 picture with him not doing something crazy. I will have to show some of their other pictures later. He is a ham and that is why we all love him so much.

For now I am just putting a couple of the family pictures up. I will post more later. I have not really had time to work on them. *** wanted to spend all of my time this week with Tyson and Lauren.

I love this one. Love the river. I really can not wait to come to this same spot when there is snow on the ground. Thanks Bruce and Janice for letting us come into your beautiful back yard.

Now any of you who know us.... you know that this is the real us. My family hates it but every time we take pictures I make them pull faces in at least one picture. I love all my kids and grandkids so much I can not even tell you. There was a day when I did not think that my kids would ever get along. But now that they are adults and have their own kids I think that they finally like each other. I love that they are looking out for each other. I am so thankful for the 2 wonderful daughters that have come into our family and the love and support that they bring.
Now that Tyson and Lauren are so far away from me, I am pretty sure that I will become a much better blogger. We love you both, we will miss you and we can not wait until the next time we get to give you a big hug and kiss.
One last funny note. After Tyson and Lauren left my office this morning my boss came into my office and asked if I was alright. When he saw the tears he stepped right back out and said. Let me know if I can talk to you the rest of the day or do I need to wait until tomorrow. I guess he knows you don't mess with a crying mother.

What a sad moment, to say goodbye to your son and his wife. Tyson is a great person, he was such a great friend when he was in Cokeville, and he will go far in life because of the good person he is! I'm sure he and Lauren will be missed so much! Hang in there!

Cute pics of the family. You and Robert will just have to go out to AK to see Tyson and Lauren! Wish we could have seen them off. The v-ball girls took first at regionals last weekend and we just got back from State V-ball, Cokeville winning it all and becoming 2008 State Champs. It was a great two weeks, but we feel badly missing the party. GOOD LUCK Tyson and Lauren.
