Dear Byron,
Today you started your Clinical Fellowship Year as a Speech Pathologist at UNC Hospital working with Head and Neck Cancer Patients.
For the past month and a half we've been really selfish and had you all to ourselves, but we decided we'd play nice and share youv with some other people now.
I'm not saying we're happy about it, but we're sharing none-the-less.
We're very, very proud of you and know you'll be fantastic.
I for one, am feeling the physical and emotional tuggings of missing my helper and friend. Who am I supposed to talk to all day now, and eat lunch with, and hold hands while walking around the mall with, and fix Connor lunch and put him down for a nap while I take care of Kylene, and take the kids outside so I can make dinner, and...oh well, I guess we need to let you go so we can do things like, you know, eat.
It sure was fun while it lasted and we can't wait for you to come home tonight.
Miss you!
Kristi, Connor, and Kylene

I know it is hard to see Byron go to work everyday. You have had a wonderful time together as a family without the stress of working. Cherish the times you have had. Many more cherished times will come your way.

That was so cute. I totally understand that feeling. I'm so glad you had some time together as a family. Especially after two hard years in grad school. I think the hardest part about being married to your best friend is that you always wish there was more time. I hate seeing Geoff go to work every day too.
