It is good to be home. We got home from our trip to the frozen north super late last night. Everyone was in a foul mood and touchy from so many hours in the car. This morning Froggy woke up with a smile on her face and a request to read on of her home books. We said MoDe Ani and then read the story. We snuggled as a family and I could feel a sense of peace settle over us. We followed our regular morning routine for the first time in almost a week. We all had a wonderful time on our trip. Froggy played in the snow and visited with her Aunt Adrian and tons of fun. Daddy and I explored and gossipped, caught up with old friends and met new friends. The trip was exciting and fun but stressful in a very positive way. And now the calm and peace of being home is visible in every member of the house.
