The day woke up gloomy and rainy; setting the perfect tone for my emotions that day.
The day that we drove to the airport as a family.
Cornel left for his business trip and took Nathan along.
Nathan was so excited to get to ride on the plane again. He had his little "suitcase" with books for the trip.
He ran through security and clapped when he didn't beep. He waved goodbye to his mother, and never looked back.
This is the first time that Nathan has ever been on a plane without me. This is the first time that I have been away from him longer than a few days.
I am not ashamed to admit I cried on the way home.
He, on the other hand, is busy having fun with Daddy on the their "man trip". At least I got a couple of cuddles and "I love you's" before he left. This should help get me through the next weeks.
