Be it ever so humble...

We are home! We made it home at 1:00am after MANY delays on the way . Thankfully no flight attendants or pilots were killed during the delays. We landed in Chicago on time, went through the pain of customs and then we were suppose to be on our way back to Bham at 7:35. Well, the first delay said we would leave at 8:05, then 8:30, then 9, then 9:30...well we did leave at 9:30pm BUT the plane didn't take us to Bham it took us to.... NASHVILLE! There was something wrong with the battery on the plane so we had to stop and change batteries then get more gas...so finally we landed in Bham around 12:45am. We are all so happy to be home! Needless to say we did not get up until 3pm Saturday afternoon. Then we went to bed at 11pm...and here it is 4:20 am(been up since 3am) and Bert, EG and Sophie and I are in the school room playing with play-doh. I love America and I love Alabama and I love my bed and I love potable water! AND let me just tell you how GREAT my friends are. Not only did we still have a good crowd at the airport at 1:00am BUT we came home to a clean house, home cooked meals, re-stocked fridge beautiful flowers and sweet notes. Thank you so much to everyone who helped clean the house...Cynthia, Laura, Girls and Jessica ( I know what a BIG job that is). Thank you Melody for the soup (eating the watermelon right now)! Thank you Sutton family for dinner last night! Thank you Laura for those yummy cupcakes, in fact think I will go eat one right now!
There's no place like home.

So glad you are home!!!! I think this weekend of traveling was full of delays (ours wasn't so bad thankfully...just a 30 minute delay due to fog issues in Denver).

I LOVE potable water as well. It's truly the LITTLE things that make it home for me.
