Day 60-They Are On Their Way HOME!

Maria's view-

I doubt VERY seriously that Chris will blog today due to all of the travel.  I do know that he has a very long layover, though.  So he just may!

Seems like he had a very interesting morning with little Griffin since he got to meet some Swamp People at the airport!  So exciting!  I can't wait to hear all about that.  Chris will post pictures of it, for sure.

I woke up, not feeling very well at all, having to be on the road with my kids at 0630 to sell my slot in the Lactation Conference that I was going to attend June 25-29.  I'm pretty bummed about not attending but my children need me more that I need that conference.  Maybe next time!  After that, we went to the commissary and I stocked up on groceries while still feeling like a wreck.  I bought enough food for 4 breakfasts, lunches, and dinners, and some baby food for Griffin, just in case he needs it... and some more diapers.  It hit me at that point that I have 2 children in diapers for no telling how much longer! WHEW.  If it wasn't for our "German Shelf" toilet, I would consider using cloth.  I will definitely look into it when we are stateside again.

We got home and I stayed on the appt line trying to line up Griffin's first medical appt for an 1 hour and 30 mins!  I gave up when I needed to go and help a friend out who locked her keys in her car.  I needed to buy 2 umbrella strollers and new car seats at the BX but decided to wait until the hubby can help me.   Well, I guess we will actually be ordering new car seats because the BX had none, no surprise!

Big G got to spend her birthday money that Maw Maw gave her.  $25 dollars bought her a new Friends Lego set that she's (I've) been working on for the past few hours between everything else that I'm trying to get done!   That Lego set is driving me nuts!  LOL.

I just took some Tylenol and I am feeling a bit better.  So I'm trying to get the house back in order.  I attempted to cook Cheddar Brats tonight and failed miserably... that's Chris' job, for sure! 

Honestly, all I want to do right now is crawl in bed with my girls and just relax.  So I think we may do that. :-)

They arrive tomorrow morning at 0925!  That's around 0225 Central time.  Can't wait!!  Praying that our little dude loves his new home, his new sisters, his new everything!  Dude has a family!  YAY!

We will update y'all as soon as we can!! 

Love and Hugs!


  1. I have been using cloth diapers with my kids - email me if you want advice. What is a German shelf toilet?


  2. A German shelf is a toilet that has a platform within the toilet bowl, where little water is... and well, I guess the purpose is to examine your poop before you flush...or that's what I've heard... So there's very little water in the toilet itself until you flush and it's only just enough.


Tell us what'cha think!
