Oh well, oh well, I feel so good today,
We touched ground on an international runway
Jet propelled back home, from over the seas, to the USA.

More than 30 hours after we got into a taxi to take our family to the airport in Dubai, we're back in the Pacific Northwest. It's taking coffee and doughnuts to keep us upright at this point. (Maple bars!!! Total bliss!!!)
Mike was trying to keep Thomas awake as long as possible tonight, trying to get him on the correct time schedule for here and maybe lessen some of the jetlag. Thomas finally escaped persecution by huddling on a wooden chair under the kitchen table and going to sleep. (see above) We gently put him to bed.
I am pleased to report Bethy finally finally finally got her Slurpee.
I'm pretty sure life doesn't get any better than this. Well, not without a good night's sleep, anyway.
So, so happy to be home.
