Home again, home again, jiggety-jig

We're home!  

After a wonderful week of beach, pool, sun and family fun, we are home.  I hope to have pictures and stories to share soon.  For now, to give you an idea of how wiped out my kiddos were last night when we rolled in after two days of driving home...

(each night I asked the kids what's the "last thing" they want to tell me before bed...it cuts the "oh, one more thing, mom" stall tactic that Josh perfected early on...it's often a comment about what they want to do the next day or a place they would like to visit)

Me:  Ellie, what's the last thing you want to tell me?
Ellie:  (through sobs and tears from sheer overtiredness)  I don't want to do nothing!


I hear ya, dear girl.  It was a great week, with no major catastrophes (including good traveling days, except for one visit to the Walmart at 2am to replace a car battery).  Thanks for the thoughts and prayers.

Ellie sounds like I felt last night after our weekend adventure. Sounds like an exciting summer family trip!

Yeah!! Glad you had a great time. Can't wait to hear more about it. The drive alone sounds like an adventure.
