stink bomb

im real sorry to anyone who's checked this since we've been home! im soooo bad about this kind of stuff. Here are pics of us coming home from 34 hours of travel. Saying "travel" reeeeeeally feels like the wrong word to describe our trip home. Traveling with a 5 year old who has malaria and skin so dry it was raw (in the worst possible place), who is for the first time ever, in a place filled with white people, was not the funnest event in my life.......and then again when i think about it, it kinda was. I hope i never forget the panic/ fear/ curiosity over the Amsterdam airport. the biggest source of fear was of course "the escalator". I was so incredibly happy to be back in america! I remember feeling relieved that if obeds malaria got worse we could go to a "trustworthy" hospital and see an english speaking doctor. not speaking the your physicians language definitely makes things scarier at the hospital. I was so utterly exhausted aaaaand 12 pounds lighter when we landed in t.c. Obed seemed tired and over stimulated. Axle was so nervous, he hid under the chairs. and harley was just harley. aaron was such a relief to see. i missed him pretty much from day 0. enough talking, heres the photos:
