My house is a total wreck. The dishes need doing, the laundry is piling up and the floors need some attention. Oh well, the kids are here and we are so happy to have them. I am up with the 4 year old tonight. He keeps having nightmares. The other three are anxious and nervous about starting a new school. I can't blame them, I remember when I moved and had to start a new school. It just seems so right to have them here. I was wondering what on earth I was getting myself into a few days ago, but not anymore. I am very aware that we are very much in the honeymoon stage of things, I am not kidding myself, but it still feels right. Last night we had a Welcome home cake for the kids. The girls put up balloons and decorated while we were at the school for orientation. They were so surprised when we got home. Dick is doing great watching his tone of voice too. I am so proud of each and every one of them.
