So…we were set to start our first day of school tomorrow.

Labor Day.

I chose the holiday intentionally.  Dad is off, and I thought it might be nice to kick off the year together, and have a little field trip to start our Ohio history studies.

And then the phone rang at 10:45 p.m. last night.

Clementine is coming home for a couple days!!  What a delightful distraction…

There is much jubilation taking place at the moment, and frenzied preparations for her arrival late this evening.  Both Emily and Charlotte have made up beds in Mommy and Daddy’s room…they want Clem to take their room.

A bouquet of flowers and a sweet welcome home sign await her…

…and lots of hugs and kisses!
