I haven’t posted since we returned from a week in Georgia visiting my family, mostly because the feelings I’m left with are too much for mere words. Here I will (finally) share pictures from our trip and a big thank you to Peter for taking us all to ATL and serving us while we visited, caught up with each others lives, made wonderful memories…and said goodbye.

Jerome was blocking the sun from Ian with his new bandana.  sunset from the plane, three hours till landing. the next morning was Christmas for our family! comin’ in with presents! waiting :-) :-) the very popular trampoline. facepaint! we discovered that Corynn is a little artist!  first day with facepaints good job, Corynn! 2 butterflies  hahaha! marshmallow guns! ready and loaded! how do you work this thing?!? thanks Uncle Vann! epic marshmallow battle! reloading help we’ve missed our Gigi!
