Last night at 7:30pm, I got on a flight from HNL to DAL (via HOU). I was so sad to leave my family and the relaxing island life that I've been living for the past 9 days, but SO excited to see my husband and my kids.
I miss my family already, especially my mom and my auntie, but it was so great to come home to my own house and take a nap in my own bed. The Scout Master has done an amazing job filling in for me while I've been gone. He's made meals, driven kids to school, seminary and lessons. He's cleaned, changed light bulbs, taken care of sick kids, taken cover during impending tornadoes, made sure everyone was happy and healthy, and not complained ONCE that I've been lounging around by pools and walking on beaches for the past 10 days. I'm so grateful to have gone on this amazing trip and I can't wait to bring them all back with me in November. But for now, I'm going to totally enjoy getting back into my routine and reconnecting with my kids.
