Holly and Noah Part II...

Dear Holly,

Or should I say "Howeeeeee", which is how Noah says your name when he is only playing with you? I felt bad that last night when you asked Noah if he wanted to go get ice cream with you, he said, "no". Please know that had Ryan not been out of town, I'm sure he would have said, "yes" in a heart beat. Of course, being the sweetheart that you are, you still went out and got him a "tasty tasty", which he enjoyed eating with you.

Normally, Noah only likes to "snuggle" when he doesn't feel well, but with you around, he snuggles all the time... with you. I'm sure that once you leave, none of us will get any snuggle time with Noah. Below are some pictures that show the special bond between you and Noah. I hope you like them.


  1. He better snuggle with ME!
    Howwweeee sure will be missed...

  2. Jenna,

    Thank you just doesn't seem enough for what you have done for us. It was a hard decision to let her stay up there and finish the year. I wasn't prepared to let her go that soon. We prayed about it and everything seem to fall into place. It worked fine for a few months but then we decided she needed to make other arrangements. I wasn't sure what to do. It doesn't matter how old they are, you still worry about them.

    Holly said that you had offered your home and I was so surprised that a teacher would open not just her home but her family to a student although I knew that she was extremely fond of you and spoke about your class often.

    Within a day she felt completely at home. You welcomed her and made her feel like a part of the family. It was comforting to us to know she was happy and that you felt like she fit in well. She wanted so much to help you. Holly told me "I think I was meant to be here."

    I know this will be a tough weekend for her and you. Just know that we consider you all family now and we want you to feel welcome here anytime! We are only 2 hours from the beach, 3 from Myrtle Beach. I know it would be hard to travel now but think about it for later. I'm sure Holly will also want to fly back and visit.

    See you soon and thanks again for taking such good care of Holly!
