I don't have any photos from Pella as of right now...but I know for sure that the kids had a most fantastic time. They were there from Thursday afternoon until Sunday afternoon, when my in-laws brought them back to me in Davenport. I know Drew for sure was feeling homesick the few days before we got to Pella, but it sounds as though a new place and new faces was what he needed to get him through until we headed home.
As for me, this was my weekend.
In other words --- awesome.
As for Brad and his two weeks home alone, he did a bit of this.
Pretty excited to have that project finally crossed off the list!
