Something to hold on to...

Kenya Homecoming

My Kenya traveler is home. Sleeping. We picked him up at his college tonight rather than the airport. After hello, his next words were, “I am so tired”. I asked if he had the cable to his digital camera so we could see pictures at home and he informed me, “I didn’t take any pictures, only about four. I will get copies of everyone else’s”. At that my mouth must have dropped because he asked if I was all right. Then he said something quite profound; he said, “I figured I should have either been working or playing with the children, not taking pictures”. I guess he has a valid point, but how can a mom show off her son’s trip to Kenya without pictures? I guess I will wait for those copies. He then wanted a milk shake but we did not stop until an hour into our trip home in order to get the best one. At that point we woke him, he took a few sips then went back to his deep sleep for the rest of the way home. Upon arrival at home he said, “ I am going to bed real soon”. He did. Five minutes after walking in our house he is fast asleep. So there you have it. I must wait until tomorrow to get any details of his trip, and that is okay. He is safe on American soil, looks healthy to me, and evidently had a good trip. I have to remember that with travel, layovers and the time change he had been awake nearly 3 days. Thank you for your prayers for all of us. I will have more details to share at a later time.

I'm glad to hear he's returned in one piece...even if he didn't take pictures. Although he had an excelent excuse! Bubba and Princess were glad to see the boys.
