He's Home!

We FINALLY got Jeremy home! He and Kasey arrived in the States on Friday evening and were back in SD with us at 12:30pm Saturday. They didn't get into the States until late so they were not given a hotel room and had to sleep at the airport in NJ. The first things they asked for were a shower, clean clothes (their luggage is still missing) and food!

Jeremy talked non-stop for several hours. I can tell he really enjoyed his trip. He's not a huge talker but he just went on and on and on. He has some very interesting stories and he has some great photos too. The Fjords were his favorite part of the trip and he has some really gorgeous shots of that region. I am hoping to get some of his photos posted when I get a chance (he took about 350 pictures).

It is so good to have him home! I figure if I can handle this experience, I really shouldn't have any problem sending him off to college in a few weeks.....the college he chose is only 45 miles away.

Great! Answered prayers.
But college, I don't know. It seems more permanent. Best wishes to all of you with that upcoming event.
