I have counted my kids and they are all here. My husband seems ok - but very tired. This, of course, might be nothing to do with my being away and more to do with his normal ability to take on too much!
It is good to take a break. To not think of church or studies or any of the usual things. To sleep in my own bed. To look at life from a different angle.
I may take my ten year old back to Grahamstown with me.
