Yes, he arrived home! After 24+ hours of traveling (which was awful), we were all so glad to have him home. He had a fantastic time in Peru. I haven't been blogging because we've been enjoying each other's company. Plus Jake has had swine flu. Luckily it's been incredibly mild and is almost over and now he has immunity! So we've all been staying home and laying low.
At the end of the summer we'd gotten some sand for Jake to play outside with. He LOVED it and often spent at least an hour a day playing outside with sand and water. However, with the cold weather (plus being sick!) that was not a good idea. My friend Korin, who got the idea from me to get sand, gave me the idea to set it up indoors! Jake has happily been playing with the indoor sandbox for quite some time each day now. (No water allowed, though!!)
