Well we surprized everyone back in the U.S.A of our coming home 6 weeks early. It was pretty funny actually. Dru called from San. Fran. and his father answered and while they were talking asked "So what are the chances of you coming home early?" Dru had this big grin on his face and proceeded to tell his father that we were on American soil and if he could pick us up in a couple of hours.
Shauna and Mas picked us up and Shauna announced that was the best phone call she's had in a long time. It was pretty cute. It's always nice to know you're wanted.
We arrived home on the 21st of March.
That morning in NZ we had an easter egg hunt with the cuzzies before we left. It was really fun. I left a bucket with one chocolate easter bunny in it. Masaru ran out in the morning all excited as well as the others.
I told them the bunny had left me this note with clues to the other eggs and they needed to listen to the rules and clues. They had the funnest time. Running here, there and everywhere to receive the eggs.
Our house was tidy when we cam home to Utah and then a bomb exploaded in our luggage and now I'm only getting on top of it and it's Wednesday!!
Thankfully Dru's parents fed us the whole weekend since we had zero food in the house. It was a nice easter weekend.
We had a warm reception at church that Sunday. We never did make it to our classes!! We made it to sacrament though. It was nice to be greeted so well there too.
We decided to come home because we have a lot of think about and do. We're probably going to go to Idaho law school so I need to slowly but surely start packing the house into apartment size again, (does anyone else think this is a step back?) Don't mention that to Dru.
We need to figure out how to pay for law school. So we've got a lot of research and praying to do as well as still needing to hear from 4 more schools.
The UofU said no. So we're pretty bummed about that.
We prayed about the decision to come back to Utah and recieved a yes. So it made it easier for me to leave. Although I cried on the plane uncontrolably for about half an hour.
It wasn't straight away either. It was about 6 hours into the flight. Weird!
So we're leaving summer only to come into summer here. Three summers in a row. I kinda feel bad for Yuki as I think this winter she'll freeze like a cute little popsicle.
It's nice to be in my own bed, it's nice to be in my own house but I miss my family and the free medical care and all the good food and people.
I'm completely torn between two countries. It's kinda sad but what do you do?
I think out of everything I know I'm meant to be where Dru is and at the end of the day it's here in Utah for now.
Ok I think this post is pretty random with my thoughts and writings so I'll cut it off here.
