My family left on this day.
I actually felt very much at peace. I was totally and completely calm.
I didn't feel much of the heart wrenching feeling that I felt last year.
Part of me is waiting for it to hit.
Maybe it hasn't hit yet because I've been so busy.
Or maybe it won't hit.
I know that I will see my family again... and soon.
I know that I can talk to them every day.
My family is very much missed by me, but I can live with that.
I also know that I have a family to live with for the next year.
Maybe that's what is making the difference.
Speaking of which, I moved in yesterday.
Everything has gone so smoothly.
I have my own bathroom for the first time ever. Crazy.
Also, I think this is the most comfortable bed I've ever slept on (Thanks, Deb!)
I know that this has been a lot of change in the past few months, and I know I've been very vague. So if anyone of my *cough* many readers has any questions about all of this, ask and I will tell :) I just have no idea what I should talk about.

Well here are my pictures for the day.

Just had to show you the Shedd fam at 4 A.M.... yes, you may be shocked, but I actually did wake up at 3:50 A.M. and I LIVED!

That was the sunrise on the way home from the airport.... morning skies are SO pretty.

As I pulled on to my street I saw the light streaming through this tree. I quickly pulled to the side of the road, hopped out, and took this picture.

Oh, and I love how you forced the sleepy-heads into one last photograph with you:)

I'm really glad you have a family to live with and a very comfortable bed to sleep on. Hopefully your new situation helps as you miss your family.

Katelyn, it was like 2 minutes before we left. You were awake. Haha.
