Hold Onto Your Butts

If you grew up in the 80's/90's like me, you remember the magic of Jurassic Park.  The music, the special effects--it was simply one in a million.  In fact, one of my favorite scenes involved Samuel L. Jackson "rebooting" the park's security system and offering up his classic line of "Hold onto your butts."  I always giggled at the scene and since then, I've remembered this line when going into one of life's challenges.

Well, it is yet another "hold onto your butts" moment for me and our family.  We learned last night that ALL of our kiddos are going to be discharged from the NICU this week.  So, Isabelle comes home today.  Millie comes home tomorrow; Luke on Friday; and Ava on Saturday.  So, come the end of the weekend, we will have EVERYONE in this sweet little rental.

The doctors have asked us to stay in Phoenix for a week before going home.  All of this to say, WE'RE COMING HOME in the next 10 days or so.  HOORAY!!  Or maybe uh oh?  I'm not sure!

We still don't have anyone interested in helping us on the private jet front, so I think we'll have to start considering other options in the near future.  What those are, I'm not sure, but I've got about 10 days to figure it out.

Michael's mom is already here helping with Clara, so we have her help this weekend.  My super parents are currently driving to Virginia to put the finishing touches on our house before my mom turns around and flies out here at the beginning of next week.  I'm not sure who will be more exhausted--me or her.

Please keep us in your thoughts and prayers.  It's going to be a bumpy few days and I pray God will give me patience and a sense of humor.

Hold on to your butts!
