Hello, how’s it going?

Today the kids and my wife have been struggling with jet-lag. For the past month or so they have been in Japan, which is 14-hours ahead of Texas so it’s quite a severe time-difference! My youngest son didn’t sleep a wink last night, but took a long nap this afternoon, and in the photo above you can see my oldest son sleeping at around 5pm. We had to wake him for dinner. 😴

But my sleep schedule was affected immediately by them being home, and I stayed up til 1 AM the night they arrived, and then tonight I am up way past my usual bedtime again… which leads me to believe that jet-lag is highly contagious! 😝
