Photobucket Yes, I'm home.....

do note I said "I" and not "we're". LOL

The children and I arrived home on the 20th.....a few days ahead of schedule. We dropped Mike at a local park so that he could study for his FINAL ACSC test. YES.

I've been catching up on this and that: laundry, inventoried our TOG order, mail, laundry, cleaning, shopping, school shopping (YIKES), and loading vacation photos.

Last night we met Cy at Mr. Gattis. Mike even came in from the trailer. Arielle and Nolan had been saving pages of "tickets" to treat us to a family night out. What a joy - to actually have a fun night together here at home AND to have the children work hard to provide it. The older boys went over to spend the night at Josiah's. This will be the last time for a while, as college begins next week.

Mike discovered that the Chapel Assignment's Officer is going to be on base this a.m. so he is going in to work....and then we'll meet him at noon to bring the trailer home. I suspect the rest of the day will be taken up with unpacking and any projects Mike has been dreaming about during study breaks. ::snort::

Never fear - there are only 3 more days of vacation photos to load....and then the blog (and maybe my life?) will be back to our new normal. LOL

Sometimes I think we hit a new "normal" every other week (LOL)!

So glad your home! It's always tough trying to get back to what we think of as "normal" after a wonderful vacation. Praying you adjust back quickly!

I'm glad Arielle finally met her goal of a Mr. Gatti's trip! I didn't know Nolan was saving up with her. Good work!
