For the sake of completeness, I’ll report that we returned safely to Phoenix yesterday morning. My mom met us at the security checkpoint, and our bags were already at the carousel when we got there. We arrived home in time for a quick lunch and a shower and made it to the last Mass at our church. A two-hour nap and dinner at my parents’ house rounded out the day.
Today, we catch up on sleep, and maybe a few necessary errands.
My thanks go out to everyone who visited this blog and shared their thoughts with us while we were traveling. It was great to stay in touch with our friends and family back home and around the world.
