Today's our last full day in the states, and I decided to create a little photo collage of our time here:
We get asked a lot if we're ready to go back. Yes, yes we are. But at the same time it's always hard to say goodbye. And it's going to be especially hard, knowing I won't be here for the birth of our first grandchild.
But it's not quite as difficult because we'll be coming back for a short furlough next April. By that time Simon should be 3-4 months old, smiling and cooing a lot, and we should have a lot of fun interacting with him.
So we leave with mixed feelings. An eagerness to get back home, and an eagerness to come back next year.
It's called anticipation.
