Our travelers made it back tonight,
Very safe and sound.
Glad to have their feet planted firm--
On North Dakota ground.
"499 pictures to import"--
Is what the camera-card read...
Mom would post a few, except--
She's headed for her bed!
Jacob's still elated of course!
Airplanes fill his head...
Instead of counting sheep for sleep
I guess he'll count clouds instead.
I baked a lemon, house cake
To celebrate their return...
They have so much to tell us,
Of all the things they've learned.
But that will wait 'til later.
It's time to hit the sack!
Tomorrow will come quickly...
It's so good to have them back!
