We're Home!

We finally made it home! It was a long day of travel, which I will recount later, but suffice it to say, we are dubbing it "The Longest Day." From the time we got up in Hong Kong to the time we landed in Sioux Falls, we travelled over 24 hours and 7,700 miles. Aiden slept only a few restless hours on the plane and a few restless hours last night. (I only wish I had slept as much as he has in the last few days. Troy and I are going on far less sleep over a longer stretch.) He was bright-eyed and bushy-tailed at 5:15 this a.m. Sigh. We'll see how getting his nights and days turned around goes!

  1. Welcome Home! It looks like you have a tired little guy. Maybe you will all get caught up on rest. Good luck as you get Aiden settled into his new home. I will keep you in my prayers as you adjust to life at home.

  2. Welcome back new and improved Sturgeon Family!! Can't wait to see you all :)
