So we've spent the last week in Florida.
We left the Sunday after Thanksgiving and so, combined with Thanksgiving break, this is the first day the girls have been in school in almost two weeks. Unpacking and catching up on rest has gone well, and we were all sad to leave Florida behind, but also happy to get back to our routines.
We've been waiting for this trip since last Spring, and for the last month the kids have been counting down the days.
Grandpa and Grandma (Jim's parents) came along with us, which made the kids incredibly happy and could be summed up with one image:

Our first time flying with all four kids was not only smooth but fun; Hudson especially was delighted with all things air travel. The trip in general was easy, action-packed, and relaxing all at the same time. We swam, we ate well, we went out on late-night dates.

When I get to it, I'll share some pictures from it all, along with entries from the girls' travel journals.
An albatross about my neck, I bore the burden of the camera.
