My kids are finally back home! For those of you who didn't know, they went to visit their dad who got two weeks of R&R while serving in Iraq. The kids went to Alabama for two weeks. That was the longest they have ever been away from me, and the farthest they have ever been from me. It was really odd to have them out of the house. Some days, the house seemed very empty. But since I did still have 3 more kids at home during this time, the two weeks went by a lot faster than I had expected.
The kids had a wonderful time visiting their dad, grandparents and aunt. I am just glad it is all over.
In order for the kids to get to Alabama, we drove to the halfway point for both dropping them off and picking them up. The destination was over 530 miles away. So we drove all day long, and then turned around and came back home the next day. Twice. Needless to say, I am still exhausted from the trips. We got home a little before midnight last night. We also did a bit of traveling during the one weekend between these two trips to celebrate our anniversary.
In other new, I only have to go to school two more times to finish up my degree. Woohoo!!!!
