Home is where my heart is

When I pulled into the driveway from the airport, my heart caught in my throat.

Nathaniel, Nick and Amelia were on the front porch, anxiously awaiting my arrival. In the rain. Apparently Mel and I managed to bring it all the way across the continent with us.

Jake wouldn't come out on the porch because he was only wearing underwear and he was embarrassed. But when I made my way inside, through the gauntlet of leg-hugs and drooly kisses, he excitedly laid something brown in my hand.

Jake: "MOMMY! Look what I made just for you while you were gone!"

Me: [handling it gingerly]  "Um, WOW, Jake! It's ... it's really GREAT. Um, what IS it?"
