Home Sweet Maine

I'm back home!

...and would you believe that it was warmer in Maine than in Ethiopia?

The kids seemed to have a great week while I was away. Dirt took them out on day trips almost every day. They flew kites at the beach, went to the Children's Museum, went to the movies, had a sleep over, went for a picnic, and more!

However, even after all of that, they were still happy to have me back! I got the warmest welcome home! They were so sweet. After loving up on all those orphans all week, it was so good to love up on my own kids! ...and they smelled so good to me! :-)

We capped of the weekend by visiting the beach for a little bit. Though it was an 80-degree day, by 4:30pm, it was getting chilly at the beach. I love Maine.

It's good to be home!

Welcome home. I can't think of a better way to celebrate your homecoming. The beach is the best place.

I've only been to Maine once, but I loved it, too. What a wonderful place to live!
