My father-in-law was playing frisbee with Austin.
I think Leona was checking her man out playing frisbee.
It's good to be back!
We had so many great times while we were home. But let me back up.
Right before we took the 8 hour flight to Michigan a couple of weeks ago, my in-laws, Paul and Leona, came to visit us in England. Our niece Chyenne, her husband, Zach, and our niece Natalie were also here. We took them to different places during that week like Wales, Liverpool, London, Stonehenge, and Chester, England. It was great to have them here.
Towards the end of that week, I had to pack us all up to get on the very same plane as them and head to the good ole' U.S. of A. In Chicago we parted ways. They went to Indiana and we ended up driving to Michigan. Long story. No need to go there.
We enjoyed spending time with our friends in Michigan. Visiting the church we moved from is always great because it's our family away from family. Our friends, Mike and Liz, hosted us in their home and our time together was great. I have no pictures downloaded yet, but will post them next time.
After Michigan, we drove down to Indiana where we stayed at my in-laws' home. We just relaxed, and enjoyed her home cooking, and also went to Pine Lake for the day.
We have been back here since Saturday and the jetlag is not gone yet. Last night, 4 out of 5 children were up until midnight and, needless to say, we are both tired. I informed the kids that if they don't stay in their beds tonight, there will be no sweets or "screens" of any kind tomorrow. Call me mean, but this mom needs her sleep.
Remember I mentioned taking my U.K. driving test a few weeks ago? Well, I didn't pass it. What a bummer! I actually cried. The minimum amount of time that has to pass before you take it again is 10 days. I ended up rescheduling it for today... not really great timing considering the jetlag I just mentioned, but the good news is...
I passed! Praise the Lord.
So glad to be back my friends, and I look forward to catching up on your blogs.
