Family pictures

Glenn is back in the USA for about three weeks, then he flies back to South Korea until the end of February. He wanted to come back to move Amy and the girls onto their next duty-station and into their new house, get Hayley settled in school, and do any other things he could do to make life easier for his family.

He arrived here last night, and he and his family will leave by mid-morning. We're happy to be able to spend a few hours with him.

On Tuesday I had the brilliant idea to make pictures of all of us (minus Aric, who is in FL) together.

Amazingly enough, I remembered this idea last night and I managed to gather our eight children, two daughters-in-law, three granddaughters, and Steve and kept everyone together on the front porch long enough to get some pictures made. AND I asked Chuck and Kim if they'd come over and take the pictures and they did.

Chuck and Kim, each with a camera, were snapping away as we tried to look "large-group normal" and I thought, "This is great! Everyone's looking in the right direction, smiling - or at least looking pleasant - and we'll probably have more than one good picture to use!"

Then Sam ran out the front door and yelled, "I'm HERE!!"

So now I'm the mom who has never left one of her children behind at church, a store, or a rest area, but did forget to include the youngest child in the once-in-many-years, possibly-not-a-lifetime family photo.

Oh yeah - but are you sure that wasn't your dad that did that? I think we always rode together and he was the driver... .
