Home! We're home!
We made it through the crazy flights and short layovers. At one point I was handed a wheelchair and after helping Cale sit, we flew! I grabbed it and ran! Once we were to our home airport we were missing a bag and ended up waiting around for an hour and half! We were laughing because who would have thought that after making such tight connections that we'd get stuck in our hometown airport?! Cale was wearing his red angry birds hat and pretended to peck at me...so time went by with entertainment at least ;) haha! We were surprised not only with walking in our new home, but also because my in-laws were standing in our living room!
The first night since we arrived home so late we visited, Cale walked around and then we were asleep! Tiredness hit quickly in the Darling Home. Next morning we were up and awake before 5am! Yikes! Hello time change.
Tuesday night we finally celebrated Christmas with family! Our home was full of bodies and tons of food. We opened gifts and shared stories...such a great time. No pictures though! Can you believe it?! Me not taking pictures? Fail.
Wednesday was the day to unpack and pack again! We just got home and we're off again for a week of fun! Cale was saying that this short time was a preview to being home. :)
Laundry, meetings, visiting, errands, eating, packing and surprises.
Here's Cale's big surprise...!
Here's some pictures of our home! I was trying to snap some quickly before a meeting I had today, so sorry for the lack of quality...
Cale at home!
While I was home for the week last month, Mama helped me with the shower curtain. It stopped where the black part at the bottom starts and with how high up the bar is, the curtain was way too short! Mama found this black material that has texture and movement, pulled out the sewing machine and within minutes we had a perfectly fitted shower curtain! I think I like it even more now!
we are blessed.
I always know to check Cale's pockets when doing laundry...I was still quite surprised when I found these in his pockets! When asked why he had them he said, "I found them!" Haha!
I chopped my hair off. It's been over a year that I've been discussing the same cut with the lady that does my hair and finally I committed! I already want to change it a tad, but until the next appointment I'm good to go! :)
Do you remember me telling you about a gift that Cale had picked out for Mama for Christmas? Yeah...it's awesome. And...she's going to kill me for posting this. Footy Pj's...
Cale has had a challenging week. Adjusting is hard and for some reason now that we're home he hates the checklist. We're going to press on and keep going. Will you be praying for us? Pray for Cale's anger which can stem from all the changes that are taking place, confusion, or a handful of other things. Also, pray that he would begin to accept the checklist here at home. Didn't I just write about how it was an answer to prayer?! Be praying for my heart. It's hard not to be discouraged when the same feeling inside now is what I was feeling before 7E. Although, thankfully this time I know we have tools in place and it's not quite as intense. It's been a busy hard week...
Cale has eaten homemade sweet potato fries and at dinner he prayed that God would bless our upcoming trip...so thankful for both of those things!
