Missing Andrew

Andrew has been gone to the Dominican since last Tuesday as a sponsor on our church's youth group mission trip. Because they are working in a very rural area, and the cell phone coverage isn't good I have only received a few text messages from him when they go in to town. I have never gone this long in our entire relationship without having some sort of conversation with him. It has been very weird not being able to talk to him.
I have been trying to keep myself busy while he is gone so that time will go by fast. I went to Abilene for a few days to visit my parents. My mom had a hip replacement 3 weeks ago so she couldn't leave the house so we stayed at home the whole time and made stuff for baby Luke. My mom is great at sewing (when I was little she made lot of clothes for me). We spend our time making burp rags, blankets, etc. Luke is going to have more baby stuff than he can ever need.
After I went to Abilene, I came back to Grapevine for a day and then I headed out to the lake for the weekend with my brother-in-law, sister-in-law, nephew and a few of their friends. We hung out, watched golf, played 42, but mostly spent our time out on the boat. Since I can't wakeboard, ski, tube, etc. this summer I have been enjoying working on my tan and watching others do all of those things. Yesterday my 1 1/2 year old nephew, Brazos, got out on a tube (with his dad of course). He had so much fun and looked so cute doing it. Now I am back home hanging out and getting the house in order. All this said, I have had fun while Andrew has been gone, but I am very much ready for him to be home! I am ready to see this face again!
