We finally arrived home last night at suppertime. With all the stops along the way, it took quite awhile to get here.
The older boys had the privilege of carrying in all the stuff, since Mike can’t. Once all the stuff was in, I picked up the little kids from a friend’s house. Gabbie was especially excited to see her Daddy!
We had picked up Papa Murphey’s pizza to have for dinner. Not the usual celebration for a birthday, but it worked. The neighbor had made a cake for Benj, and we also had pie and brownies, so there was plenty of sugar to go around.
Mike really enjoyed sitting in his leather recliner. It’s the perfect place for him to be part of the family, yet relax. He and the older boys watched a lot of basketball, which was thoroughly exhausting. Mike had slept most of the way home. It is amazing how just coming home can be so tiring.
This morning he has spent time with the younger children. Gabbie cuddled for a long time and now they are playing games. I hear there is a movie in the plan for today. We are all just happy to all be together!
