I took the drive home slow. I know Kayla's neck is still very stiff and sore. As we got closer and closer, Kayla started to get very excited. She just kept saying that she couldn't wait to see her kitty "Meow-Meow". Even though I have driven the same route every day, today's drive home seemed to take decades! Finally, we pulled in the driveway and there was a VERY sweet surprise waiting for us.
Soon, Kayla's grandma (Neena) and grandpa (Bapa) came to drop off her dearly missed brother. Within seconds there were Nerf gun darts being shot off everywhere. There were clothes all over the floor. Things just seemed "normal". I refused to let my mind go there. I just want this weekend to be all about recovery. For all four of us. We need this time to decompress and process it all. The kids (and dad) watched the new Ice Age movie and laughed and laughed. Hysterical laughs at many parts! I just took it all in enjoying all the sounds that this house makes when life is present. It's been so quiet for so long. It just felt awesome!
