I When Leah was born Nate was able to take the whole week off. I don't know who was more excited: Noah and Luke or me. Having the help I needed to adequately love and manage our family was awesome, but, even more, I loved that there was plenty of time dedicated to the boys. We had talked at length in the weeks leading up to Leah's arrival that we wanted to give all of our energy possible to making sure no one felt displaced with a new baby in the family. I think the amount of time Nate was able to spend with the boys in that first week really made a difference for Noah and Luke to understand that there was still plenty of time for them.
It had been a year since Nate and the boys visited the train museum.
They had added a few engines since then, including an example of what that horribly expensive California bullet train will look like.
