Surprise Homecoming

Today’s surprise homecoming went very well. Daddy was visiting from S. Korea and his year long military time there. I was so excited to pick him up from the airport last night (yesterday’s post) and begin the countdown to my wonderful plan to surprise all 4 of our children at school pick up today.

We picked up the four year old first, since she is undoubtedly Daddy’s girl and she was beyond surprised. She yelled “Daddy” and then hugged his neck, not letting go.  She then stated, “Your supposed to be in the Army. Mommy, you picked him up.” You couldn’t stop her from smiling and I was a bit teary eyed watching the reunion.

Next, the two year old. She is mommy’s girl but she still yelled “Daddy” and ran to his arms.  He had a bit of difficulty picking her up since he was still holding the four year old while she had a firm grip on his neck.  Equally excited to see Daddy our baby girl was smiling from ear to ear.

After that we went to the older kids. Our too cool for emotion 10 yr. old boy said hello to me and then saw Daddy over my shoulder.  His reaction was by far the best, running past me and hugging Daddy tightly (while Daddy’s girl is still in his arms, of course).  He took his time letting Daddy go and the watery eyes were evident. So, mine were too.

Lastly, we picked up our oldest.  She waved at me from down the hallway at school, smiled, and then must have spotted Daddy behind me (or saw someone was holding her little sister) because she dropped her stuff and bolted past me into Daddy’s arms.  She was in full tears but will a full smile.

It was a great surprise and a great day.  Now, excited to begin our Spring Break visit together as a family all together again.

I have so enjoyed this month sharing slices with you for Slice of Life Challenge.  I plan to continue to share but may not be daily.  I hope to continue sharing slices on Tuesdays each week.  Thank you for reading and slicing with me.

Excited for Homecoming

I’m getting ready to head to the airport. Short slice tonight.  Dropped the 4 kiddos off at my parents and am ready to pick up my husband, aka daddy, from his flight home from South Korea. He had been there for 7 months and is visiting before his final 5 months away.

The best part. ..the kiddos have no idea that daddy is heading home.  He is already state side and I cannot wait for his plane to land. We will have some time tomorrow while our babies are at school and then when I pick them up, Daddy will be there to pick them up also. I’m so excited to see each of there reactions and spend next week of Spring Break as a family in one shared zip code.

Slice of Life Day 29

For my slice of life challenge writing today I wanted to talk about the other side of this challenge.  Yes, I have written something every day and given each reader a glimpse into my day, but the best part of this challenge is reading other’s slices.  I so enjoy connecting with other writers who have embraced this challenge to write a short slice each day.  This is no easy task and I enjoy peeking in the window of other’s lives through their writings.

The best part of Slice of Life is reading others posts and finding great new blogs to follow. If you don’t believe me, click on the link below and read through some of the slices from today. I hope this year I can continue by continuing to slice each Tuesday.
