Back Home

I am sorry that I have been such a terribly blogger lately. I have been back home in Alabama and just got back last night. We were supposed to be home on Monday, but my Grandmother became very ill over the weekend. She was in ICU all week and so Rob and I pushed back our flight a few days to be with her.

Quick updates. Rob had an amazing time in Israel. He made it back safely with tons of footage and pictures. He and his coworker Alex were filming for Adam's Easter series as well as DVD's for his upcoming book. Rob was exhausted but thankful for such a meaningful and challenging week.

I am glad to be home. Yes, home in Kansas. Isn't that crazy? I missed my bed. I missed my dogs. But I couldn't have asked for a better time at home. I hate that so much of it was spent at the hospital, but in a way I was so thankful to be there when my grandmother was so sick. I loved catching up and having lunch and coffee with so many friends. And I loved being with my family. I miss them already.

Bennett was a trooper. Every since December, her world has been changed on a weekly basis. But the baby I am bringing home is not the one I took to Alabama three weeks ago. She seems...older. A lot older. She is getting around more, talking more, and just so much more alert and less baby like every day. She talks all the time when she is not crawling everywhere. She is starting to put two words together which scares me. She now says, "Come back." She only says that because we all say it every time she crawls out of a room. She is SO active which made the plane ride home quite miserable.

But, anyway, we're here and I will catch up with blogging after I put away all of the suitcases. Lots of pictures to come and I want to thank everyone who called and e-mailed me for praying for my grandmother. You'll never know how much that meant to me.
