We finally made it back to Melcher last nite.....well this morning around 1:30 A.M. the girls' plane was running an hour late.....most of the time...not a problem but when it puts you in at 9:30 P.M and you have to eat dinner and drive for about three hours.....it does kind of feel like an issue to me anyway!!!! Troy went to work this morning and I took the day off!!! So the kids and I went to Des Moines to do a little school shopping.....6 hours later we decided maybe we were ready to go home......needless to say Kale was ready to go home about half an hour into it.....he got a new PS2 game so that was my weapon.....you know "if you aren't going to act like you know how to I will take the game back to Target"......works every time!!! So i think everyone is ready to start school on August 20th.....wow summer is over!!! I love to take the first day of school picture and compare from year to year....you don't think they change that much but when you drag the pictures out WOW what a difference one year can make. The girls said the were so happy to be home....they said one thing they missed was their beds.....made us feel good....there is no place like home!!!!!! We don't always appreciate what we have, but when you have to go without for awhile we realize maybe things aren't so bad!!!!
