Are we home yet?

I haven't spent more than 48 hrs at my house since May 18th! Our life has been a whirl-wind over the last few weeks. After spending a few days in San Antonio for Matt's graduation (post to come) I rushed home to do a little laundry and re-pack a family of 5 for a 2 1/2 week trip to Memphis. That wasn't what I had planned on doing though.

While in TX for graduation Matt informed me that his flight had been booked wrong...he was supposed to fly into Memphis for out-processing since his unit is stationed (which means all his paper work has to be done from there) there however the person booking the flights just looked at his hometown and booked him to there. I was excited I would get to greet him at the airport but not excited that we had to get him to Memphis by 8 AM Tuesday (about 15 hrs after he arrived in Knoxville). He tried to get an extension on his orders but wasn't able to. Did I mention the older 2 still had a day and 1/2 of school as well as tennis lessons. Oh yeah, and my almost 90 yr old Grandmother was going to be going with us to Memphis b/c she had a couple of dr appointments. Luckily, I have the best parents...they offered to let me, Matt and Madison go on to Memphis Monday evening and bring the other 2 kids and my Grandmother down on Friday. We had planned on being there for about a week originally though and did plan to see some childhood friends there and enjoy doing some fun things (more posts to come on that as well).

It was lots of fun though. Now we are back home for about 24 hrs to do more laundry, re-pack for the beach, love on Quinn and squeeze in an eye dr appointment and Bunko for me before leaving for the beach. I can't wait to relax and do nothing for 5 glorious days!

Then we come home to a whirl-wind of VBS, tennis and swim lessons! I am very glad to have Matt home for awhile to help out is wonderful to be a family of 5 again :)

Sounds like you guys have had a blast reconnecting as a family!!! Looks like you have had lots of fun family times together, too. We've missed you guys. Can't wait to see you!
