My Babies Are Home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My kids home coming was nothing short of amazing. Dad drove me to the airport. Can you see it past his nose? It looks like a big Circus tent.

It seriously is a HUGE airport and it took me forever to get there. My dad was stopped at security because he had a pocket knife with him. We were in to much of a rush for him to go put it in the car so he waited for us at baggage claim. When the plain landed the kids were the first to get off...and here is what I saw when they saw me.....

And then we did this together....

We seriously had so much fun today...



I feel refreshed and rejuvenated. I am so happy they are home. I am ready to dive back into parenting four...I feel I am in a much better mind set then even before they left. I realize now how much I need to take breaks and get away from them. Its very important to have time to myself...and I never allowed for that before. I want to be a better mom. I want to pay attention to detail concerning myself and my kids. I want to do all of this so that they can succeed in life and become strong independent and self sufficient people, and most of all I want them to love the Lord with all there heart mind and body. The only way for that to happen is for them to see it through me first. So....here is to new beginnings and fresh starts.

Oh, and for sure since the kids have come home....it feels that the circus is back in town....because it is a circus around here but we are seriously having so much fun.

I love my life.

Yippee the big kids are home! I can imagine that was probably one of the best feelings in the world!
I am proud of you for realizing you need to take time out to yourself. Us mom's seem to forget us when we find out we are pregnant. I am coming to realize as well that it is okay for me to take a "break" by myself and not feel so guilty about it. I kmow it will take some time to be more comfortable doing it...but baby steps.
Yeah for the circus at your house...it just means everything is getting back to normal for the 5 of you!
