Warm Un-Welcome

Tymon and I had a wonderful opportunity to go on an Alaskan cruise this past week and thanks to some wonderful friends and Nana and Bapa, we were able to go without children. Yesterday when I arrived to pick up Graeden and Elliott, they were playing with their friends in the fields and woods around the Tonks' home. They saw me pull up and hid in the woods. Reluctantly, Graeden slowly walked toward me and barely said "hi". I picked him up and hugged and kissed him and he squirmed away. It took me about half an hour to get them in the car. Elliott informed me that he wanted to live at the Tonks' house. Tymon and Jett and Jocelyn beat me home and when I walked in the door Jett gave me a hug but found out I wasn't making lunch and left. I went upstairs to see Jocelyn playing around and when I poked my head around the corner she took off in the opposite direction...when did she get so proficient moving upright? And I thought my children would miss me. Ha ha ha. We gave the boys some Alaskan float planes to fly around the yard and they lasted about 2 hours before they were broken. And after a few hours they made up for a weeks worth of hugs and kisses. That made me feel better and I know they had a great vacation, too.
