Is this thing on?

Hello? Anyone there? I did not walk off the face of the planet, although it may seem so! I actually made a very (very) last-minute decision on Saturday morning to travel home to Ohio to take care of my mom and step-dad, who were in desperate need of help.

I did a few loads of laundry, packed up my trio, and made the long trip by myself. Samuel has had a very hard time being away from his Daddy but they have been able to talk on the phone and Ben was even able to read a bedtime story to the boys over Skype once. Eliana stayed dry the entire drive here, which was amazing! We only had to make 3 brief stops to use the bathroom. I was so impressed! She is fighting a cold and has been a little off and not sleeping as well as usual. Zakkai seems totally oblivious to everything and is just enjoying seeing family and helping to walk my mom's dog:)

I am so insanely busy that I feel like I have half a brain most of the day! I keep starting things and not finishing them, like texts back to people and am wiped out by the end of the day. But I am so happy to be here and be helping, especially seeing how much they needed someone.

We'll be heading back Thursday morning so please pray for a safe trip for us and for continued healing for my family!

Glad you could make the impromptu trip. That is what summer break is for, right? :)
