We made it!

The drive was long, and the van was PACKED, but everything went really well on the road.  Gotta love those audio books...

It's like a bad scene from "Where's Waldo Ellie?"


I think we're still trying to mesh our heads and hearts with geography, but, with each reunion and unpacked box, life feels more settled.  When driving home from therapy today, Ellie asked, "Are we going back to our Florida house or Canada house?"  We're all reconfiguring our compasses.

Speaking of therapy...Ellie has been having a grand ole time, showing off all those new skills for her therapists and conductors!  And I'VE been having a great time hearing the "oooh"s and "awww"s.  Perhaps our therapists are indulgent, but it's still heartwarming.

We are adding things to the "return or get rid of pile"!  Specialized toilet seat (she can sit on the potty solo now!).  First Kaye Walker (she's grown out of it!).  Fisher Price booster seat (no booster seats needed anymore!).  All things that we were using before the surgery....but not now!  Whoop!

This past week of transition and travel has been exhausting for all of us, so I'll leave you with this brief update and try to mimic Ellie:

Love y'all!

Thanks for sharing this leg of your journey with us...I'm glad the surgery is over, Florida therapies are over and you are HOME! Welcome back!

So glad you're home safe and sound. I've been thinking about you and waiting for your blog update. So glad to hear Ellie is showing off! Go Ellie!
