We are home now, on day two of being back in our home time zone. The rest of the flights went well and everyone’s bags made it home so we were quickly through the doors and saw our kiddos waiting for us. Ezra just stared at my face with a huge smile on his face, as if to say “is it really you?”. He looked like he couldn’t believe his eyes!
Sleep the first night didn’t go so well for me, as I woke up at 3am for the day. Peter seemed to sleep well, but he didn’t sleep as much as I did on the London-Calgary flight and also stayed up later when we got home. I was worn out and not feeling well so I went straight to bed.
The next morning we went to church here in Calgary. I definitely teared up when we sang “Here I am to Worship” and all the verses were in English. I could just hear the Estonian and Russian verses.
I had a big nap in the afternoon and so did Ezra! We spent time together as a family after supper. I’m telling you, our mission trip was tiring and full of long days, but motherhood is more tiring. I definitely wasn’t used to the demandingness of toddlers and kindergarteners after two weeks of being away from it!
Groceries and unpacking today, relaxing a bit too. I’m not napping today: Chelsey – 1/jetlag – 0.
