They came out smiling!!!! Yeah YEAH Yeah! The little one didn't have much of a clue about what had been going on, but nonetheless was smiling and playing with another child. The elder one came out with a big grin, and stayed content.
They were happy over lunch, and very loud. The eldest felt compelled to lie head down hanging out of an armchair and shout revolutionary history at me. We started at the French revolution, moved through the American, on and on through the Russian revolution, the Hungarian, the Velvet..... Meanwhile the youngest was amusing herself by sitting on my prone body and shouting, "Hola! Bon Dia!" into my face at about 3 second intervals. Very joyous, but very loud. The little one however did not want to go back to school. At all. Thought two drop offs a day might be a problem.
The husband seemes to be holding up as well.
I am going for a nap. Right now.
So far, so good.
