Back in the U.S.A.


What packing for ten people for ten days looks like.

Skype and wi-fi kept our hearts from being torn and missing the kids to the point of insanity.  Grandparents and an aunt and uncle were super great about keeping us posted on their latest adventures back in the states.

Here’s what they were up to while we were away.

Despite all the skyping and photo updates, this was a sight for sore eyes.  We were so glad to have our crew back together (almost…still waiting on our guy in Europe).
