She's home! She's home! She's home! Yes. Middle Child's flight arrived at about a quarter after 7:00 tonight. Her name is mud because all the other kids ("...except for Russell!") called their parents yesterday after crossing the Mexican border and arriving safely in San Diego, CA. All the other kids except for Katie ("...and Russell!"). (Russell is not my kid, so he is not really serving as a sufficient defense for my kid's failure to make contact upon re-entering the country.) Fortunately, the mother of one of those kids who did opt to phone home called our house to report this tidbit. Still. We're all glad to have Mud back in our midst, and she talked for two hours straight filling us in on the days we were apart from her perspective. She's loud. And funny. But most important tonight, she's home.
