Last night, around 10 p.m., the back door opened and my college freshman, now officially a college sophomore, returned home.
The tiredness after a 16-hour drive didn't take away his joy at coming home. And his extra skinny frame (he's lost 13 pounds this year) and his need for a haircut didn't reduce the thrill I felt at giving him a squeeze once again.
The cat was too busy posing for the photo to show his happiness.
So now my little house is crowded once again and it may be a very long summer, but, for now, I'm thrilled to have all three of my kids home again.
What a wonderful surprise! It is always good to see those "tall" kids come through the door.
Thanks for sharing...and for visiting my blog.
How wonderful to have your "nest" filled again. I'm sure the cat is happy too! :-)
Nothing beats a surprise like that. So happy for you. :)
Oh lovely! I know how you feel... my son lost a lot of weight too after the freshman year. And how do people get the term 'The Freshman 15', that they'd gain 15 lbs. ?
Paulita, it's great when you can bring your family together. I'm sure you'll enjoy the summer! Have a great day!
How wonderful. Thanks for sharing and Enjoy.
What a great surprise! Have a wonderful summer. :-)
My son surprised me at around 3:30 in the morning once when he came home on leave from the Marines. I don't particularly like surprises, but that time I loved it!
I hear you. My guy has taken a year off, there is always someone home. I love it.
16 hours is a long, long drive! I'm glad he got home safe. It will be a busy summer at your house!
what a great photo and nice surprise.
Glad you will have a full house once again.
Enjoy your time with all three at home :-) .. If mine came home now I would be shocked .. they come with all their own family in tow .. (I know we are all family) but they still have their own children ..:-)
