A work trip left me flying solo for five days.
So to say I was ready for Michael's first day home is an understatement.
Eva skipped school for the first time.
I thought twice about it - for a millisecond - but some days are just made for skipping school.
Slow and lazy morning with presents from his trip.
Lunch at our favorite sandwich spot.
Exploring the woods, little caves, and carrying sticks.
Paying with kisses to a sweet blonde troll guarding her bridge.
Driving through the country while the kiddos napped...
and the long uninterrupted conversation it made possible.
