I am so grateful the kids arrived back home safe and sound–Thank you Lord! They were all safe during the week and all 3 of them said they had a fabulous time! The most difficult thing was all 3 of them needed to take turns as they were telling me about all the things they did during the week–things they ate, awards they won, games they played, songs they sang, swimming in the pool, the condition of the bathrooms they used, etc.
I could not sleep when they were gone! I slept maybe 3 or 4 hours at night and it usually wasn’t consecutive either. I’d sleep for an hour or an hour and a half, wake up and be awake for 2 hours, then go back to sleep and so on. Last night was the first night in the last week that I actually slept!!! My stomach was also in knots all week, in addition to the few days prior to them leaving. It’s all better now that they’re home though!
Ok, now that they are all home, time to unpack their stuff and start on the marathon of laundry that awaits me!
