After we went to Lydia’s school to pick up some curriculum, I realized I did not have it in me to deal with the kids at home. Instead we headed to Qualtrics’ playground. I imagined that all I would have to do is lounge on the couch and play, but Ammon took it upon himself to try to climb the slide:
I had to rouse myself and go monitor the situation.
Abe was also tired. After work he put his laptop on the trunk of his car and drove home. When he was half way home, a car behind him flashed lights and a man jumped out of his car. He retrieved the laptop, handed it to Abe, and said, “I don’t know how you’ve made it this far!” Abe felt blessed to live in a community of honest people, and he also felt watched over by God. His intact laptop is a miracle.
In the evening Clark, Swathi, Soren and Sruthi arrived!! My favorite part of everyone’s arrival occurred when Soren, after seven hours of travel, smiled and lisped the word “tired,” as Swathi buckled him in. He said it with a tired tear trickling down his cheek. It was beyond cute.
I can’t wait to see all of the kids play together tomorrow! Now I am going to bed so I can fully enjoy the scene.
