We finally made it home and it was so nice to step off the plane to the feeling of cold air. Marsha, Bucko, Mom, and Dad flew down to help us transfer all of our new stuff back home. We must have really accumulated a lot because we filled the van and had a lot more stuff to carry on the plane. Thank you so much, by the way, to Chris and Holly Hifield??? for driving our van home for us, and then thanks to Mom, Dad, Lainie, and Adam for unloading it. The house looked great, it was spotless as Mom, Terri Peterson, Bucko, Aunt Bertie, Rachel, and Lainie had worked their butts off cleaning for a couple days. We quickly made it unspotless.
The babies did so well on the flight. We hardly heard a peep from any of them, and they have done very well adjusting to being the centers of attention for more than just three people. As for Monica and I, we have done very well NOT being the centers of attention anymore. It is okay though, and we are gladly ready to share the spotlight with the little squirts. Monica and I have had all four of them by ourselves for the first two nights home. We have done well handling the feedings and changings, only having about 9 arguments. The kids are trying to divide Team Parent, but they are failing as we are doing a nice job of teamwork. However, after being alone with them for 6-8 hours it is a welcome sound to hear the door opening in the morning with reinforcements.
Sorry it is such a quick post, but the feedings are calling. We promise more updates and pictures to come. As far as the question about any media, The Wichita Eagle came out yesterday to interview us and take pictures for the newspaper. The story will run on Sunday. Thanks for all the prayers.
