Yesterday afternoon my son Ben arrived home from The Citadel for his Thanksgiving break. I have been waiting for this visit for 3 long months and was watching out the window often for his arrival. However, he still managed to sneak into the house quietly and was almost to the kitchen when I saw him! It is so great having him home! This morning, though, while I was in the kitchen beginning to make breakfast, I received the surprise of my life. I was talking with Russ who “just happened” to be up early on a Saturday, when I heard a different voice behind me. It was Barbi!! She had off work today, so she drove up from Savannah (arriving at the unearthly hour of 2:30 AM) to surprise us! Russ is the only one who knew she was coming. No, there wasn’t a camera ready, but Barbi said my facial expression was priceless! So for just a few short hours, I have all four of my kiddos under my roof again…and I get my Thanksgiving a few days early!
Make sure to stop my and view our newly updated blog! Barbi’s been working on reorganizing all our posts and giving the homepage a new look. It is still a work in progress so please bear with us. We’d love hearing constructive suggestions!
