Well, the Miller family is all back together again. TOri and Isabelle spent an extra week with their grandparents and family in Ohio and I did not think they would want to come home at all, but each girl surprised and "warmed my heart" (to quote Tara) today....

THe Mace did not seem to notice that her sisters were gone this week, but this morning I brought her into the room where they were sleeping and she just started pointing back and forth at them saying "Whazzat? Whazzat? Whazzat?" and then she climbed up on the bed gave them hugs and started playing around and laughing with them.

Ronsi woke up, saw Macie and gave her three very distinct hugs. She told me that she had to do that because Grandma had told her to give Macie a hug from her and Papa and then she said she had to give one for herself.

And finally, Tori, the one that insisted she DID NOT want to come home and DID NOT miss us saw the Minnesota sign and exclaimed, "Minnesota, My Home"! and when we came over the hill and saw the Minneapolis skyline she yelled, "I can see my city"!

ANd both TOri and Isabelle started chanting about a mile from home for all the red lights to be green and for me to "go, go, go..." so they could get home to Daddy.

It is good for them and us to have gone, but it is good to be home....together.

Awwwww. Welcome home! Did you have to drive all the way back to Ohio to get them? Are you going to Iowa again this summer? We were thinking about going away again...but then we got this HUGE tax bill. So I don't know. Love, B
