It's not REALLY Goodbye!

Today's a tough day.  Definitely not a day I've circled on my calendar (there's actually a big sad face on it!)  It's a day I've been ignoring (possibly denying).  It's the day Lindsay moves to South Africa.

She's been with us since the week the triplets were born.  She instantly became a part of our family.

I've said it before...I have no idea how I would have survived that first year without her.  Even now, Lindsay keeps me sane.  She has became more than "just" our nanny...she's my friend!  She's taught me so much: how to enjoy running, how to follow your dreams...even when others think you're nuts, and how to not let the fact that "there are three of them" keep you from taking an adventure.

A few weeks ago, we watched her marry a wonderful guy.  A guy that my kids (and us too) have also grown to love.

So before she heads off on her 18 hour flight to a land I can't even imagine, I want her to know...she's loved.  Incredibly loved.  And she'll be missed...something fierce!

Thank you, Lindsay.  For all you are.  For all you've done.  For all you're GOING to do.  Thank you for being part of our lives and letting us be part of yours.  We'll definitely see you on Skype...

Just stopping by from SITS and just had to say you have a very beautiful family.

I'm sorry you have to say Goodbyes today. Just try to think of it as a new adventure.

Ok, seriously? Tears streaming down my face here! At work! Why must you do this to me? Now, I miss Lyndsey. And I don't even really know her.

Yes this should have come with a bigger warning. What a hard goodbye. Thank You Lindsey, from all of us with Triplets.

Such a sweet post! Gotta love that technology like Skype will keep you all so well connected though :)
