March 15


Homecoming!

This is our family welcoming our son, Andy back this afternoon. He is in the army and has been in South Korea for almost a year. He will be with us for almost 3 weeks before he leaves to be stationed in Colorado. We were a happy bunch at the airport today, in spite of the fact that something happened to a belt on our van when we pulled into the parking lot. My husband and son-in law are back at the airport trying to fix it at this moment. We were blessed to have lots of family there to welcome Andy back, so we were able to get a ride back home.

I'm so happy for your Mari! I don't even want to imagine my little boy leaving the nest, never mind leaving the country. Enjoy your time with him and then you can go to visit Colorado once he is there! I've heard Colorado is the place to live these days - seems a lot of people are heading there to make it their home!
