Scott's home!





This morning Leslie called me to say she "wasn't feeling well" and wanted to come over and hang out for the afternoon. I told her that was fine; to let herself in and I would be home right after church. She kinda hemed and hawed and acted like she wanted me to come home early, but I didn't pick up on her hints and stayed for the full 3 hours. When I did get home, G and Maggie were in the driveway and Leslie was laying on the couch. I asked her if she was feeling any better, she said "kinda". I excused myself and went into the bedroom to put on may knock around clothes. When I walked out of my room, Scott came meandering out of the guest room! He got a 4 day pass and flew in to DFW this morning at 6:00, rented a car and drove home! On his way down he had called Leslie to let her know so she was there for the surprise; not really sick at all. What a joy it is to have him home for a few days! We threw together a quick meal, called Becca and Seth, and spent the afternoon together. The Lord is so loving to have given me this precious gift of a few days with my son before he deploys. He is tired and thin, but otherwise seems as glad to be home as I am to have him here. I have already set up a sub for tomorrow and am looking forward to spending the day with him. I am going to try to post some photos. Leslie showed me how to do it yesterday but I have slept since then! The other shots are random shots of the grandbabies and my parents. The crazy one was taken by Seth using PhotoBooth on my laptop.

Lucky you!! Enjoy your time with Scott. I can't believe how much he looks like a younger, taller Ron Searls!! I am sure you will find great fun to do while he is there, even if it is just sitting around talking. Have a great 4 days!!!

Love you guys
