Ben, and Desirae...

Belle



Ben, and Desirae have been living with us since Ben started the academy in May. Actually, He was only home on the weekends for the first 9 weeks. We where blessed to have Desirae living here with us the past 3 1/2 months, and Ben the past 6 weeks, since finishing the academy. Yesterday was the dreaded day. They rented a cute home in an area that is halfway between both of their jobs. I am so excited for them to be able to have their own space. I am going to miss having them here daily. We had soooo much fun! Many fun memories! Movies watched, late night Sonic runs, swimming, conversations, planning, listening, enjoying, loving, and much more. We will miss you Ben, Desirae, and Belle! Hugs!

There is definitely some bonding that happens living together with family. I'm sure you will miss them tons!

I'm just catching up on your jewelry, Michelle & LOVE it! You are so creative. I think I need an in-person showing though. I'd love to order something for my sister's b-day in September.

That must be so hard to have a child leave the nest. :( I wouldn't be able to fathom it either. :) You are such an incredible & FUN mom!! I sure look up to you and hope that I am able to have a relationship like that w/ my girls. :) LOVE the new necklaces! You need to post a "dummy's guide to making Michelle's necklaces".

How hard for you to let the kids go but how exciting for them to be on their own! Hopefully it isn't to far away and they can visit often.

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your jewlery!! You are so talented!!

What a sweet post!! Will they be living close by? That'll be so sad to have them all leave. I am happy for them and excited for them to have a place to call their "own".

How fun to have them living with you, but it is also nice for them to have their own place too, I would imagine. I was catching up on your previous entries and love your jewelry! Very cool and new - you should take some pics of your "model" wearing them. You are very talented and creative.

How fun for them to have their own place. You will just have to plan the late night Sonic runs. They're worth it either way!
