HE'S HERE!

Welcome Home Daddy!
August 2007

My iTunes: Only You by Joshua Radin

I can't believe that the day came already! It went by so fast! After weeks (5 weeks to be specific) of being apart, John flew in to visit us for about 10 days! We are so happy to be reunited. He will go back to London for about a week and then he will be back here sometime mid-September. While we won't want him to leave us again.....we are SO GRATEFUL for our time with him and know it is such a gift for us all! The kids are each jockeying for quality time with him as I type this (honestly, I am LOVING the break for me!).

I have to give a shout out to my sister-in-law Peggy. She snapped this shot above for me at the airport when he arrived. This is a keeper because we are all in it...and have genuinely joyful smiles! I am so glad we are together again!

Balance has been restored....at least for now! :)

I hope you all are well wherever you are!

Okay, I need that family picture right away! It is so gorgeous!!! I promise to put away all the ones you don't like if you'll just send me this one. Dad and I are both so happy that John has come back to visit and also knowing that he'll be back very soon for good. I love you and and your beautiful smiles. Thanks Peggy for the shot!

After a very long day at the hospital, what a wonderful treat to come home and see such a joyous photo. You are blessed! And, I am blessed by your friendship!

HOORAY! The family is restored, at least for a while. That is a wonderful photo of you all!

Nice job by the guest photographer. This one's so good I figured for sure you set up the tripod for it and had everybody pose just right.

Nice sign pic, too. I think my WW post this week will feature a sign.

What a neat family photo! My husband travels a lot, (though my children are grown and don't live nearby)so I know what it feels like when he comes home. The Lord keep you all safe when he goes away again

This is more than just a "snap"! Maybe Peggy needs to start her own photo blog.

Carmi said...

I'm such a bad blog-friend that I can't begin to make it up. I've been away from my favorite reads for so long that I've missed some pretty important comings and goings. Please accept my apologies.

I'm thrilled that you're all together. I know what it's like to be apart, then together, then apart, so you have my deepest empathy.

I also can't wait to see the pics you get now that you're stateside. Another environment for Anna to explore. What fun you'll have!

I'd better get back to work. Gotta get ready for a phone interview with a television network. I'll try to sound smart!
