Thank you for your prayers while Michael was out of the country. He arrived home last Thursday and is making the adjustment back to our time zone. He had a fast-paced trip wrought with negotiations. However, he had one day to relax in which he went snorkeling in a part of the Indian Ocean off the coast of Thailand. The next trip (if there is one) will involve significantly more sight-seeing.
We had a very happy family reunion on Friday night when Mom, Olivia, Isaac, and I arrived home. Michael carried Olivia in one arm and Isaac in the other for a good bit of time. They were SO proud to see their Daddy.
Mom, Olivia, Isaac, and I had a great road trip. We attended my cousin's beautiful wedding and had a great time visiting with family after wards. We spent a great deal of time with my grandparents, as well as with my sister, uncles, aunts, and cousins.
On the way back to Georgia, we stopped at Michael's parents one night and then one night in the town I grew up in. We visited with several close family friends, went shopping at some of my favorite stores, and ate at some of my favorite restaurants. I enjoyed the opportunity to break away from my normal weekly routine, but I really appreciate that warm, cozy feeling of being with our little family in our little home once again.
