However, he is extremely sleep deprived, in reverse culture shock, and slightly jet lagged. But to distract him from all that, I had a packed line up of intense activities for his first full day back. A five year old’s birthday party at the gymnastics centre followed closely by a dinner party at our house  for ten. I also made sure to time Jasper’s next molar for today.
