I survived!

Or maybe I should say Philip survived. I just got back from my first trip yesterday. It was "supposed" to be nice and easy. For the most part things went smoothly other than getting re-crewed. I enjoyed my first full night's sleep in 6 months! Philip said Sarah did well other than the fact that she wouldn't take more than 3 ounces from her bottle at a time. Both Hannah and Micah cried when I left but I think Micah took it the hardest. I left at 6:30 and when I talked to him at 9:00 he was still crying. He told me he couldn't go to sleep because he couldn't stop thinking about about break my heart. It's a hard adjustment for everyone when they've gotten used to me being home for the last 8 months. The best part of the trip? Coming home! When Sarah saw me the first time she cried. It was a weird kind of excited cry. Then she reached for me and buried her head in my chest. I didn't cry the whole time I was gone but I almost cried when she did that! Now I'm counting down the days until January when I'm off for another month!!!
