My boys are home!

Thank goodness...maybe tonight I will sleep better. I know that is silly...but I really didn't sleep well while at all they were gone. Caleb's bus got in about 1pm today. I could not believe my eyes when I saw him. He lost 14 pounds since last Thursday. It was all that walking around Disney. Several of the kids were throwing up on the bus on the way back from Florida...and Caleb felt a little nauseated when he got off the bus...but I'm pretty sure he was just tired. He showered...slept...got up and ate (I made his favorite....Chicken and Sausage Gumbo) and went right back to bed.
He got some really cute pictures...I'll share them later. He had a really good time.

Stephen wasn't supposed to come back from his friends place until tomorrow...but it is a really small town and his friend had no Internet, no cable TV and there wasn't much to do there....aww poor baby! LOL He had to come back home to all his comforts....But seriously...I am glad they are home...I missed them a lot. I think it is pretty obvious that this mom is not ready for an empty nest.
