Well we’re here in England.
It was nearly a 24-hour journey from when we left my parent’s home in Coquitlam and arrived at Rachel’s parent’s home in Devon, and we stayed up for about 31 hours with only a few short naps in between.
But after a few “please kill me now” moments yesterday, a good night’s sleep and some nice sunshine has restored the optimism. It was also nice to see all the family yesterday as well.
The girls are doing well – somewhat surprisingly there were no tears as we left. We talk about missing people and things (they seem to miss our minivan more than I would have expected), but they’re also excited about things to look forward to. This includes buying some fudge at Rolly’s Fudge Pantry in Barnstaple today. Woo!
