To my great relief, Jody is home from Uganda. He has been gone 11 days. I have to say I did MUCH better than I expected myself to do. I thought I'd be positively crazy with 4 kids ages 5 1/2 and under. But I only felt like I was losing it last night. So, I see that maybe 9 days are my happy limit.
Jody had a great trip. He and my dad led a team to the town where we used to live, Hoima. Jody LOVED reconnecting with his friends there.
After naptime we piled in the car and headed to the airport to pick him up. Of course it was a huge toss up as to what was the best part, riding up and down the escalator or having daddy back. Jody couldn't believe how big Millie is. He said, "I'm missed 1/4 of her life!" (She did weigh 9.5 lbs at her check up)
I made chicken soup for supper and it hit the spot! Jody was really tired of beans and rice, so he really enjoyed it.
Now to get Jody over jetlag before Christmas!
