Husband is finally on the ground after a long day of flights and delays and delayed flights. This morning's goodbyes were mixed. Elyssa and Jackson were fine, but McKenna was a little emotional. Three weeks without Dad is a little hard to take. My stress exerted itself in the form of stomach pains. ouch. But by this afternoon, everyone was happy and smiling again and my own nerves had settled. I have realized quickly just how strong this family is and how much we all rely on one another and help out. I love these guys.
