Just a quick note to let you all know we made it safe and sound. Itai and I got in last night after 26 hours of travel, including sitting in the plane at Kennedy for 2.5 hours waiting for some thunderstorms to roll through. After having Itai sleeping with his head on my lap for several hours of both of the last two flights my butt finally went literally numb somewhere over Cleveland and I had to unceremoniously dump him out and go stand up for half an hour until I was able to even contemplate sitting again LOL. We finally made it (though Maya's carseat which I was bringing didn't) only 2 hours later than our originally scheduled arrival. I had a work breakfast this morning (which was lovely) and am now officially on vacation - yay me! Jay and Maya followed this morning, this time without Jay's suitcase which will supposedly show up sometime before midnight.
The travel was long and onerous, but basically fine. Both kids were great on the flights and are now sound asleep after a long afternoon on the playground.
Speaking of sleep, I'm exhausted. More to come once I've had time to do something worth reporting ;-).
