Visiting Scott's Graveside

We have been in Idaho for almost two weeks now, and one of the best parts of being here is that we can go to the cemetary as often as we like to visit Scott's graveside.
This last Friday Scott would have turned 10 months old. I went and bought some cute little garden posts to put out there for him. They are so cute, and it makes me happy to have found something I like to place out there. My favorite is a little metal airplane that has propellers that spin in the wind.
We of course still miss Scott, but think of him often. I am especially happy and comforted when Summer talks about him.
This is also the first visit to Idaho since Scott's funeral, so it is the first time seeing his headstone since it has been placed. My mom sent me pictures, but it is so much nicer in person. It is nice to see the grass grown in and to know that the cemetary is well taken care of.
So, it has been nice to go and visit him and just feel the nice spirit there.
