Brand New

We made it home last night.  We had plans to do a few more things and head back today but my body (and emotional state) reached its limit and we headed on home after lunch.  

The kids have only been home for 1 day in the past 2 weeks.  They have been great road warriors.  We couldn't have asked for better kids for what we do=)  I'm so proud of them.  They were so exhausted that they were both asleep less than 10 minutes down the road last night.

After a great balanced dinner of goldfish and cereal bars we made it home and as soon as we walked in the door the kids went right in their playroom and began re-discovering all their own toys and then outside to play in the sandbox until it got dark.  It was like all of their toys were brand new since they hadn't seen them in a couple of weeks.

I've been bragging on Josh and his new ability to pack and travel with the kids by himself.  He did a GREAT job keeping everything together.  We did have one surprise when we got home.  Rainy had a cup of milk that sat out for the duration of our stay in Raleigh which looked like a cup of white paint but definitely didn't smell like it!

So, we have 1 week together before Josh heads to Uganda.  It's gonna be a GREAT week at home=)
