It's kind of hard to see these pictures and know that we can't turn back time. And we can't shrink this massive country. What good times we had in Bethlehem.
Here are Jeremy and his co-residents at graduation. FINALLY FINISHED. Only 20 years of schooling and training. Go Jer. We're very proud.
We made it! Scotty was born 6 weeks after Jer started medical school. Time for a new chapter of our family's life.
Here's a pic of one of my favorite Bethlehemers, Miss Cheryl, the gym childcare lady. Thanks for taking such great care of my kids for (nearly) 3 years! I always felt like I was leaving them with their auntie. We miss you! A lot.
Here's my cutest little man Cyrus. Oh how I miss you buddy!
Scotty and his best preschool / kindergarten buddy Gussy. Aren't they cute?
Scotty's Primary class threw a party for Scotty. So sweet! We love love loved his teachers and all his little church buddies.
Two of my favorite little girlies:
Scotty's last day of school with buddies Ethan and Samuel (a Brasileiro!). Missed getting a pic with his super-fantastic teacher Mr. Ivanitch. I think he was the singular reason Scotty learned to love school.
And here's our last trip to see uncle Ben. These pictures make me far more sad than happy. We miss Uncle Ben so much already, and feel sad that he's all by his lonesome in MD. So grateful for the 3 years we got to spend near him though, and that our boys will have so many fond memories with him. He suggested we go to the same place we went on our very first outing, Patapsco State Park. It was a beautiful day, perfect for wading and taking little hikes. Ben and James are walking through the tunnel:
