Home Sweet Home

I'm back home! I'm tired and jet lagged but its good to be home.

The babies were wonderful on the flight and now they're with their other grandparents but we'll see them soon too. DH got to hold them and coo over them at the airport for a bit but he can't wait for more. They're visiting for a month so there'll be plenty of time.

Big news! DS got a wonderful fellowship so he won't have to teach next year...which means that he and DDIL will be able to handle the child care between themselves and we won't be going to the US for the year after all. :( I think that is the very best child care arrangement possible but it would have been fun to be the nannies and fun to be in Boston for the year.

As the babies got a little "older" and quieted down a bit I got to tour around Boston quite a bit and I even went to NYC for a week with DD. I had a great time and did a lot of shopping! :)

Can't wait to "wake up" from this jetlag and get into my sewing room...lots of unfinished projects await me plus I have a lot of new ideas (and even a bit of new fabric) to play with.

well I bet that is a let down in a way after all you were planning a year in Boston and the states. I hope you hadn't already made plans for your house to be occupied that year. Glad you had a great month visit though with your family.

No matter how much fun the trip, home is always best! Glad your children have the blessing of caring for their precious babies, though I'm sure your willingness meant a lot to them.
