Home again, home again, jiggity jog

We're back from the Midwest and into the thick of things. We made it home yesterday just in time to drop off our luggage and change clothes before heading over to Antioch to church. Had some last-minute shopping for Emily to be ready to start school today. Her school is only doing "minimum days" today and tomorrow, which means they cram all 7 periods into the time between 7:55 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. Interesting concept. She has already had to type a 2-page essay for her English class. But it's 8 p.m., and that's out of the way. All indications from day 1 are that she is going to enjoy this year.

Campbell was very happy to come home today. He is "plumb worn out," and has spent the better part of the day just resting. The lady at the kennel told me he'd probably be hoarse (not that we'd notice here at home, since rarely barks at home). This was the longest he has ever had to stay at the kennel, and I think it was probably a bit longer than he would have liked. He likes it there, but I think he prefers stays of a week or so to a 2-week stay.

Brian and I had our 20th wedding anniversary while we were away (it was the day we spent at St. Louis Mills). We'll be making plans to celebrate it soon, probably with dinner and a movie. Too bad there isn't a Kobe here. That would definitely be our first choice for dinner. But at least we got to eat there with friends while in Omaha. It had to have been the best meal we've eaten in the last year. I think we'll probably wind up at Merchant & Main.

The kids had a great time on this trip. I think if the 3 youngest had been given the option to stay or come back, they'd have opted for staying. Halle was making plans to "not wake up" on Wednesday so that she wouldn't have to get on the plane. Too bad it isn't that simple!! Truth be told, the kids weren't the only ones wishing they could stay. But back to reality it is.
