Paul has been in Australia for 5 days and came home today. The kids were so excited to see him they made him welcome home cards and while I was helping Kayla spell her words Maddie helped herself to the stamps and markers (see photo below). We made fresh bread for him and we blew up balloons to welcome him home. It was a big party. I was ready to go to bed by the time he showed up. I am always amazed at how tired I am by the time he gets home from trips, I think I have to be ready ALL the time and I can't depend on him to help with them in the evening so I never get a break and when he does get home, I turn my brain off and am able to relax a bit and it is then that I realize how tired I truly am! (Emily you are going to need to go into hibernation when Dan gets back!) Welcome Home Daddy!!
