Sweet Home Alabama…

2nd July 2007

I think I write this often when we return home.  But this time was the sweetest.  Yes, we made it home on Friday at 4pm, only 56 hours after our long trip home began.  I’ll summarize more tomorrow, when I’ve finished processing pictures, but we were sure glad to be home.  We got home in time for a small pizza dinner and birthday celebration for Analise, much redeeming the long day in the car.  (Her birthday will continue this next weekend with a party for her friends at Chuck E. Cheese. )

Unfortunately, we didn’t leave the sickness in Illinois.  Josiah was grumpy when we got home, and grudgingly went to bed on Friday night.  He woke on Saturday am, blazing hot, running a fever all day in spite of motrin and tylenol.  I missed church on Sunday to take him to the doctor to make sure it wasn’t a urinary tract infection, as his fever was nearly 103 on Sunday morning.  But everything indicated it was a viral throat infection, and he seems to have recovered today.  Yeah!

More later, with pictures!

    I am glad to hear you are home. It sounds like everyone is feeling better–good! I got my Tastefully Simple order today and can’t wait to bake bread. Happy 4th of July!
