The children were snuggled in beds...

...exhausted only begins to describe how I'm feeling right now.  It's a long story (with more to be told at a later date), but for tonight ~ or this morning actually ~ let it be said that you haven't traveled until you've been prayed home because you have the "ick" and spent time in an airplane bathroom with TWO kids...

My TWO girls, snuggled in their beds...
Little man just minutes before he crashed.  He was excited to get home to his book collection and couldn't decide what to read first.

But we're home.  And that feels good.

More after we start to figure out what our "new normal" looks like.  And I catch up on a few hours of sleep...

Enjoy your "new normal." We have safely arrived in Hickory. So good to have seen such a beautiful family tonight! Can't wait till we can all get together to really catch up. Get yourself some sleep and feel better. Hope you got your coat back!

Welcome home M family of FIVE, yipee! Can't wait to hear and see more, but girl, get some sleep! ;)

I hope you sleep all day, my friend! I was praying for you frequently yesterday, and now I know why! OH, that is a horrid way for the trip to end...been there, done that...at least not with the kids, but it's just such an unsettling experience. I am SO happy you're home safely. Hope everyone feels better quickly.

Love ya!

We got to see Traci's pictures of your 3 tonight at church and hear about your homecoming. I am glad that y'all are home safe and sound. Good luck on the sleep thing! I hope your first days at home go well.

Welcome home! We wish you a speedy recovery from your illness and hope you get back to normal soon - it took us about 10 days but that was with an ear infection thrown into the mix. We won't call for a while because you'll probably be sleeping odd hours. Glad you're home safely with your gorgeous family of five.
