Got back in late yesterday (thanks to those who prayed for our safe travel!), and we’ve been running pell mell ever since.
Had to face Boy #4 this morning and tell him that Dad did not have time to build a LEGO® Sue the Tyrannosaur with him until later since he had to work.

Still, it’s good to be back home!
