This morning Nathan was awakened by five of the six children right as soon as it was six in the morning.  He got them through the bathroom line, and then into the playroom.  Then he was able to go back to sleep.

I slept late, all the way until five, which is good for me, and woke slowly.  It was lovely.  I got my scripture study done without any interruptions, ate breakfast while it was still hot, and then just laid there some more.

It was good resting, and much needed.

Now I will be checking out of the hotel at the same time as the children are already busy in the backyard, and counting down the time I can kiss their sweet faces.

I will be so glad to be home!  I could have gone back over to the conference for the final morning, but everyone had already been by our booth.  Also, tomorrow is my 24 hour shift at the hospital, so I really need to pace myself – especially since traveling wears me out so much.  I am grateful that going home will be easier than getting here, since I am not lugging a suitcase full of books with me!

It is a beautiful day, and I am glad to be going home!

About Emily

I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints since 2009. I serve as a Chaplain, and work as a counselor. I got bilateral cochlear implants in 2010, but will always love sign language. I choose books over television, and organics over processed. Nothing is as close to flying as ballroom dancing - except maybe running, when in the solo mood. I would rather be outside than anywhere else, especially at the river riding my bike or kayaking. PhD in Marriage and Family Therapy, and currently doing a post-doc in Jewish Studies and an MDiv in Pastoral Counseling. The best thing about Emily World is that it's always an adventure, even if (not so) grammatically precise. The only thing better than writing is being married to a writer. Nathan Christensen and I were married in the Oklahoma City temple on 13 October 2012, and have since fostered more than eighty-five children. We have adopted the six who stayed, and are totally and completely and helplessly in love with our family. Nathan writes musical theater, including "Broadcast" (a musical history of the radio) and an adaption of Lois Lowry's "The Giver". He served his mission in South Korea, has taught song-writing in New York City public schools, and worked as a theater critic for a Tucson newspaper.
