What life has been like since my wife moved back home

I wanted to do a general update, in regards to how my family is doing since being reunited.  

Since my wife and I reunited after a nearly 2 year separation, things have been going pretty well.  There’s been a period of adjustment that’s probably been a little harder on Lizze than the boys and I.
