We have arrived safely back in Virginia! Yea! I am sooo happy to be home and it's not a moment too soon. Alyssa has been able to climb out of her pack n play in Florida for quite some time but yesterday at nap Rachel was in the same room during nap for the first time in weeks and she mimicked Alyssa right away and climbed right out after nap. Both of them showed up in the family room without help. Deciding her new-found skill was a good one, Rachel promptly climbed out of bed twice last night and had to be put back. Guess how thankful I was that was our last night there?? Tonight she can sleep in her bed with it's much higher sides and hopefully she'll forget all about last night's adventures because I am NOT ready for toddler beds just yet.
Thank you for all your prayers for a safe journey and after almost 3500 miles in just under 6 weeks (900 of those drive today) we have made it to Florida and back in one piece. It was a VERY long 17 hour day but the girls did as well as 1 year olds can be expected to do. Kaitlyn and Caleb were great and put up with lots and lots of Elmo and The Laurie Berkner Band.
Soooo glad to be home!!
