Welcome Home Ron!

Ron came home on Friday, August 15th around 2:00 in the afternoon. We were so happy to see him walk through the door. He traveled about 2,500 miles home in the ROTC truck. Needless to say he was pretty tired when he arrived. His trip to Ft. Lewis, Washington was a busy time so he started his trip home needing some sleep. He left Washington on Monday, August 11th. He made a stop in Wyoming to visit his wonderful Aunt Sue and Uncle Mel. His visit was so enjoyable and they made him feel right at home. Can you believe he fed a fox from his hand. Mel is very personal with the wild life out there. We have a picture to prove it. Amazing! Thank you to the Tuckers for having Ron for an evening. He stopped in Colorado Springs and visited with our friends from our early military days, the great to see them and their precious children. Thanks Elizabeth for feeding Ron a delicious meal. He really enjoyed catching up with you. His next stop was in Kansas City and we send many thanks to Auntie M. and Uncle Paul for creating a relaxing and warm visit at their home. I always say they have a "spa" atmosphere. We love our deep conversations too. After K.C. he arrived here on our doorstep....what a wonderful sight! The boys and I had to fight Max for the coveted embrace. Boy, I never saw a dog get so excited, so happy and so obnoxious for attention. He was wedging himself in between Ron, me and the boys. It was quite funny. Adam had started school and had soccer practice in the afternoon so we all ventured over to the soccer fields to watch Adam practice.

While we were watching Adam, we couldn't help but hug and laugh and goof around. We started snapping pictures.

Adam got a water break and he headed straight for Ron....The pictures are somewhat out of order. I don't have the time or patience to figure that piece of blogging out.

I love the action shot. Not bad with a not so great camera.

Andrew and Ron.

Christian and Ron.

They look so much like their Dad and very happy too!
