Home Again, Home Again...

Jiggity Jig!

(That's a little song we used to sing when we'd arrive home).

Well, we made it. We left Saturday just after 2pm. After a not-so-quick stop over at the Jordan Creek Mall in Des Moines, a few bathroom breaks and a trip to Wal-Mart to buy the essentials, we pulled into our beloved driveway at just before midnight. It was a long day but one we all enjoyed, despite leaving dad, friends & the team.

It's a beautiful Sunday evening in Rochester, the kids are outside on the Slip-N-Slide, I'm slowing unpacking and we're all trying to remember what normal life is like. Some things that will differ from our time in Kansas City: our sleeping schedule, our eating habits and our downtime. Some of the things that will remain the same: a perpetual state of "dirty" (for the kids, that is - and yes, they bathe!), having fun and going with the flow.

We were sad to leave on Saturday but oh-so happy to be home. There's nothing like sleeping in your own bed, bathing in your own shower and all the other amenities of home. It's easy to miss Kelly on a day like today, when the weather is perfect and the day is lazy. I just remind myself that it's just 2 more weeks...
It's good to be home!
