my little sister is amazing! i love her to bits and pieces! and i don’t know what i will do without her in the states! how will i survive without talking to her on the phone? i can’t just pick up my cell phone and speed dial #5 anymore when i need to talk to her and hear her ever familiar voice!
you see, as i mentioned in my last post, she moved to fiji last week! FIJI! as in the middle of the ocean, as in she doesn’t have a cell phone, as in i’m not going to see her in forever (at least that is what it will feel like!)!
i know, right! what a great adventure, FOR THEM! what a great opportunity, FOR THEM! how fun to live in fiji, FOR THEM! right??! but what about ME??! i know, selfish, right?? but, hey, she’s my only sister!
no, really, i am super excited for her and stuart, but not so much for me! i’m going to miss her! who am i kidding, i ALREADY miss her!
i loved seeing her while we were in california! it was a short and quick 6 days, but i’m glad that i had that many days with her before they left!
i opened this post stating that malia is amazing, do you know why she is amazing? back in april we flew her out so that mitch and i could go to washington d.c. on a second 10th anniversary trip. and my little sister, who has no kids of her own, became a “single mom” to our 4 girls for 9 days!! now that is what i call BRAVE! not many people would have said yes to that, but she did! she cooked for them, she chauffeured them around to their various activities, she tucked them in bed, she changed diapers, and she bathed them! it was no easy task!! but she survived it! she is amazing!
of course, many of you know that she is a talented photographer and while she was here she even took some great candid shots of our girls:
while we were gone she let them run and play in the sprinklers out back. as you can see they enjoyed having their auntie around! mitch and i sure appreciated her being there too while we were so far away!
i know malia and stuart are going to have the time of their life over in fiji, i just wish it didn’t have to be so stinkin’ far away!
malia, your big sis misses you! i guess i’ll just have to figure out how to adjust to not being able to call you any ole’ time! have so much fun!
