A great week of being with the family, only a month after I left Korea, is a constant reminder of how grateful I am to be back home—even though my home has moved during this last month.
The week began with a great Monday morning run with my twelve-year-old daughter, Elizabeth Anne. She has been running with me three times a week. We have a great time starting those days together!
Tuesday night, Monica and I went out to eat, so the kids enjoyed fish fingers and fries. We all had a good laugh after Monica and I forgot to pray for their food, while the kids sat patiently and waited.
On Thursday, Monica and I enjoyed meeting with the spouses of the international students at the Sergeants Major Academy. Meeting with them was a wonderful experience, as we met people from at least 12 different countries.
Friday was a day that Monica went shopping for the kids before they start their home school year on Monday. As I was left with the kids, I took them out front to enjoy the nearby photo props that were conveniently left over the weekend by the road crew.
Today was a rest day. Honestly, the first rest day that we have taken since I returned from Korea. Every other day has been filled with other tasks, so today we rested. We slept late,drank coffee, and thekids and I watched Duck Tales while we waited for Monica to fix up a batch pf waffles.
It is great to be home.
