Full Circle


Starting at 4:00am three weeks ago in San Antonio we've gone to Denver, Portland, Lebanon, Portland, Newport, Lebanon, Eugene, Ashland, Eugene, Portland, Salt Lake, Provo, St. George, Las Vegas, and finally arrived home to San Antonio a little after 4:00am this morning. I feel like I have three weeks worth of posts on file in my brain and can hardly wait to spill out all the treasures I've been storing. I also can't wait to get back into hearing what's been going on in your lives.

Last night was something else. I laugh and roll my eyes just thinking about it. As the gals and I took off at 11:00pm I had high hopes for a red eye, children sleeping through flight. Oh' that's just idealistic me though. I had to laugh out loud when at close to 3:00 am I had finally calmed them down enough to fall asleep, just in time to hear the pilot announce that we were making our final descent into San Anotion.

The miracle here...the three flights previous that my daughters were angelic... and those wonderful co-flyer's of mine who (after hours of coping with fussy children interrupting there hopeful sleep time)could have been ornery, put out and frustrated but instead were patient, gracious and even complimentary to me. Here's to the understanding and forgiving people in the world, and... reconsidering my next red eye flight.

PS- Why isn't could've a word? It should be.

So sorry to hear that! That does not sound like fun. Love that you always have a positive spin on those moments though.

Traveling with kids is such an adventure. I remember a nasty flight of screaming and the nice stewardesses that took turns walking the baby, and doing everything to accommodate us. I love nice people

Wow, what an adventure! I'm so sad I didn't know you were in town, well close enough anyway! I totally would have driven out to Lebanon to see you guys! I wouldn't want to intrude and I'm glad you had such fantastic family time though! Glad you're back to the blogging world and I can't wait to hear more of your adventures!
