it's not going home anymore.

Jacob (2 1/2 yrs.) and I, the day before I left.
I answered countless questions this summer. Where I live, (turns out Indiana sounds a lot like India) how many siblings I have, what kind of school I do, when I was going home. I would tell people that I'd been in the Middle East since the end of May. At the end of the summer, people would tell me how they couldn't believe how long that was for me to be gone. I would tell them that I knew that, but I was going home soon.

I've been back for four weeks on Friday. I love being home with my family, doing normal things again. Youth group started the week after I got back, and we started school two weeks after I got home.

I love being here. I love being able to do everything that I missed this summer, but there's something missing. I have this whole family on the other side of the world, and I miss them. I miss seeing them every morning, playing games with the boys, and talking with my summer mom.

I'm so thankful that I could go to the Middle East this summer. I never ever thought that it would happen, but it did, and I loved it.


  1. First of all, I love the name of your blog.

    Secondly, it's really good that you are back! That picture is just darling! I love it!

    I am new to your blog and following you. I would love if you stopped by my blog and followed me.


  2. Thank you Katie for always leaving such sweet comments on my wee little blog! You are such a darling and I'm so encouraged by you! Really. (:

    And wow, being in the Middle East must've been such a great, great experience for you. What an adventure! I wish I could be as brave as you and step out of my comfort zone more often. Have a wonderful week, dearest. x


go ahead. make my day.
