I am enjoying my time in New Mexico, but I miss my family terribly. With the exception of a weekend retreat I took with my sister when Larkspur was a toddler (back when Beatrix and Gabriel were still just sparkles in my eye as we like to say) this is the first time I have left home for more than a day without at least one of my children in tow. It’s so silly because you’d think I would be getting all this sleep, but I get in bed and get so homesick that I can’t sleep! Of course back in Virginia my kids are all having so much fun with Jonny that Keats told me on the phone that he loves it when I am gone! At least my little Bea misses me, but she is actually doing really well too. She mainly misses me when she first wakes up, and of course I am here missing her worst when I am trying to fall asleep.
