A fourteen hour time change is not all that easy to adjust to. This problem is compounded by having children who are also lagging. In fact, I think each child increases the jet lag effect by a power of one. Additionally, being sick (which Elizabeth and I both are) doubles the problem. So if you are trying to calculate our jet lag, use this equation:

(JL)4 x 2 x 2

where “JL” is a normal person’s jet lag.

Thankfully though, we are spending time at grandparents’ houses so that lessens the burden a bit, but then again it makes the kids more hyper, so it’s a wash.

Anyway, here are a few more pictures from our time in Sydney.

    In the last pic Everett looks so uncool by comparison.

    Elizabeth is the most adorable pregnant woman! While in the states, Joseph, you should really consider brushing up on the photography skills. It’s becoming a problem. ;). Can’t wait to see you all!

    Your jet lag calculation reminds me of your “A flat” strategy for success….uniquely Joseph. You should know that Alex has adopted your A flat strategy for success…he walks a very fine line but so far has been successful 🙂

      The A flat line is fine indeed!
