Where's Sam?

Sam is at Grandma Sue's until Thursday morning. Caleb has been asking all day, "When's Sam coming home?"
He and Noah helped me make bread today - each helping themselves to a nibble of the dough. Noah spit it right back out again, but Caleb, "Mmmmm!" (add much inflection here), claimed to love it. He also showed his little brother how to eat spilled flour off the counter.
Walked to the park and pretty much sat on the bench the whole time with the two of them. Things just aren't fun without Sam, I guess.

It's always so different when one is away. Both of my girls are gone for two days and although the loudest one is still here, it sure is quiet! I love how they beg for the return of the "missing child" and then about five minutes after his or her return, they're back to bickering with each other. I guess they miss the action more than anything.
And hey, for me, two kids is a breeze now that I've experienced four and the nausea of five. It's amazing how much I can get done now, when not long ago I had only two kids and thought I couldn't get anything done with them around. :) Perspective changes things.
