Dave arrived home safe and sound yesterday. I ended up taking the girls with me to the airport against Alex's wishes. I just worried that they would end up mad that they didn't get to go to the airport---which they like to do. Unfortunately, I had to make up an excuse to take them in the car. So I said we were going shopping and doing something fun. Anna Grace was not very excited to find out she was not going to be able to spend her money but was going to the airport instead. "I don't want to get daddy. I want to go shopping." Geesh. But she snapped out of it shortly after Dave appeared. AND, she slept in her own bed all last night. Yes!
He's taking them both to school tomorrow so he can see their new rooms. We'll be glad to return to some semblance of a routine. Anna Grace has been SO tired lately since beginning school that we've had many trying days. Today was one of them. We had to leave Mass early today. We've never done that before. But we left. I couldn't take it anymore. I came home and went to bed. I didn't feel a whole lot better when I woke up but at least I had a little bit of peace. Poor daddy is still on a weird schedule but held down the fort. Yeah for daddy.
I hope things will improve as time passes. No pictures right now but perhaps soon!
