After an ALL NIGHT drive, Silas was delivered safely to us at about 11:00am this morning.
We were SO happy. Hattie, Luke and I made a "Welcome Home Silas" sign. This is important because Silas thinks that whenever someone has been gone, a welcome home sign is a must. I think he was impressed with it. (See above pic)
I can't believe my parents drove all night. 12 hours. WHAT?? I don't think I could be a part of that. I mean I don't think I'd be a fair partner in that if Jody and I decided to do that. I can't stay up past 10pm. I'm hopeless. I was worried my parents were getting too old for driving all night. I woke up at like 3am and was worried...I was praying for safety and alertness. I know God answered my prayers because they pulled in the driveway and only looked slightly weary. (They left our place to go home and nap. I think I may check on them here in a little while...by phone)
Silas had a GREAT time. He has lost his voice. Just like Hattie. Its very strange. And he actually took a nap!! (that's a huge feat for his active little mind, to stop thinking and NAP) He made lots of friends. He became proficient with a snorkel thanks to Pa (my dad). He got a prize one day in his class at the "Happy Heart City" for Best Behavior. He made the "perfect" s'more.
I think we are all going to go next year. I am SO hoping the Stephens will join us. And the Mays. And the Jones. And anyone else who is interested for that matter! Click here for details. We are going to decide what week we are going to go soon. They are booking up FAST. So if you are interested, let me know!!
