Default Separation anxiety

Every weekend my husband and I get together with our poly couple. Now keep in mind both couples have two children each, so there is a total of 8 of us, and our children do not know our lifestyle, so any affection or togetherness is hiden. We have made it a rule that there is no "intimacy" when the kids are in the house, but being together as one family is all we need. We have all agreed we are more relaxed and better rested when we are all together. The only problem with that is after being together in one house for the whole weekend, we have to separate and go on with our own lives. We live 28 miles apart and we do talk throughout the day and every night to say good night. My question for anyone who has gone through this is how do you deal with the separation anxiety? Does it get any easier? I know it would make things a lot simpler if our children knew and we did live all together in one big house, yes in a perfect world, sad part is this is not a perfect world. One day our children will know and things will be easier, but for now we are just trying to get through what we need to one day at a time. Thanks
