Busy Weekend-Part 1

When our older kids were little we had a video that they loved. It was the video of this book:
Ever since that time whenever we are super busy my girlfriend and I will say, "Wow today was Huckle's busiest day ever." Goofy? Sure. But for some reason this little video is still a part of our lives ten years later.

This past weekend was definitely one of Huckle's busiest days ever.

Over the next few days we'll share what happened.

The most important thing that happened for our family was that our oldest came home from college yesterday. She just finished her freshman year and she loved it.

Our house church worshipped together yesterday. We ate a quick lunch and then almost everyone was able to go to the airport with us.

We hung out while we waited.

And then Bronwyn arrived. First welcomed by blood family and then God's family. Very cool.

I love Giovanni's arms spread out and legs kicking as he went to Bronwyn and Freitas' excited hopping as he greeted Bronwyn. (I love our house church family!)
Garrett wasn't there because he was out of town.

Later we went to go pick him up. Bronwyn went and we let her go greet him all by herself.

Normally this kind of greeting from a big sister is totally embarrassing to a fourteen year old but it looks like he didn't mind too much this time. I think he actually liked it.

Everyone is super happy that Bronwyn is home.

I caught myself smiling last night as I heard two things going on.

First, a big sister reading "Diary of a Wimpy Kid" to a little brother at bed time.
Second, hearing Bronwyn and Ansley giggling in their room after everyone else had gone to bed.

We are going to enjoy the next three months together.

I'm thrilled that Bronwyn is home and all of you guys are together again. I trust her time at ACU was everything she had hoped!

She loved her year at ACU! I don't believe it could have gone any better for her.

It's always good to hear from you brother. Hope you and your family are doing well. We'd love to see you on our next furlough.
