A Week

February 21, 2009

Hard to believe it has been a week since Adam's return. A week of catching up, lounging around the house, playing in the backyard, trips to the beach and the park, lots of laughing, hugging, and savoring family meals each night with everyone in their spots. Successful bread baking with this great recipe. Visiting with friends and neighbors.A date night (went to see Slumdog Millionaire...what an intense film). Soccer playing.Giggling. But it has also been a week of change and adjustment. Some changes have been very welcome. Dishes and laundry aren't so overwhelming with another set of hands. Bedtime runs much smoother with Daddy home. We have had some significant set backs with potty issues but I am confident that will resolve once Camille is feeling more secure about Adam's return. I keep pinching myself. I can relate to some of Camille's anxiety. Hard to believe that he is really back,that the deployment is over, that things are so good.What a week. A good week.

And we are about to start another good week. Headed to hunt for manatees and Mickey Mouse.

Sounds like a very good week, and hope the next one is even better!

I've tagged you on my blog for the 6 in 6 photo, if you want to play :-)

Awwww... WONDERFUL! Two sets of hands make everything more enjoyable!

Glad people are seeing Slumdog. Intense. Try watching that a week after accepting the referral of a little girl in India! I left the theatre bawling and woke up in the middle of the night and cried a bit more. I'm glad I saw it; I will remember that film for a very long time- probably until we're in India and can see it all for ourselves and soak it in... the good and the bad.

Hi.
I found your blog through a comment you left on Karen's blog. I was stationed with her in Sigonella. We had the same wonderful babysitter- Bina. I've been reading about your life for months and need to tell you that I'm thrilled that your husband is finally home! Enjoy. I love the crafts you do with your children. You're a good mom. :)
