KIDS ARE HOME, I'M SICK AND WAY TOO BUSY

A big thanks to the American Red Cross for getting the kids home from Belgium in less than two days for a funeral. They arrived in Jackson Friday afternoon, and we met them at the Funeral Home and they were exausted, then on Saturday Brandon's Dad was layed to rest due to unsuspected complications after knee surgery.

So it has been crazy around here for the last few days, and on top of that I brought back the crud with me from DC and can't seem to overcome it. We are hoping that we can squeeze in a little more time with the kids before they head back to Belgium on Friday. No biggie if we don's, as they will be back next month for a long visit that has already been planed.

After a day on the couch just being lazy and trying to regain some strength, DH convinced me to take a walk outside with the camera and this is the results. Now I am glad I took that stroll.
