Celsius Degrees, Siblings, and Home!
Well we made it home and we not only had a bulk head seat on the airplane home but an ENTIRE row of bulk head seats that were empty...sweet!! The only bummer was the plane had only one large tv screen which is like less then 1 foot away from our seats. Needless to say, it's hard to sleep with such a bright screen flickering. but Caden slept and as I have heard, happy baby, happy flight.
The last few days there were soo hot. 103 and 104 degrees Fernheit. I finally have my reference for degrees in Celsius. I have long ago abandoned trying to convert Fernheit to Celsius so when listening to the weather I would just draw a blank. Well, Caden had a slight fever while I was there and he's temperature was 37.7 Celsius which was 99.6 Farenheit. I base all other temperatures on that and just have a range. So the high there a few days before I left was 41 degrees Celsius. Hot.
I really enjoyed the time with my siblings and it amazes me how siblings can go through life together, experience the exact same life experiences, parents, family life, and come away with a totally different view of one's life then their siblings. One's view is happy over a certain event and for the other sibling it's tramatic. Guess one's point of reference and inner struggles can be the glasses one views life.
I missed my family so much and it felt good to hug Morgan and Andy. Glad I went cause it makes coming home just sweeter.
I am functioning in some twilight zone though as far as my sleep. I'm going to try my best to stay up past 8 pm tonight
Look at the green on those leaves!!. That's the Yara river we walked past every day on our way to the tennis center. We took a boat tour of the Yara river one of the days.
