Yay, Daddy’s home! S and I ended up taking our two vans up to the airport to get them. We had a hard time finding it as the screen was not very descriptive of where to find arriving international flights. So Scott was headed from the opposite of baggage claim when the girls saw him. So they did the whole running to and hugging him thing. It was sweet. Lexi didn’t let him go for a good 10 minutes. Then it was back to mommy. Such a mommy’s girl.
So the trip went well. No “big stories” to tell. They were able to give about 30 packages away and go into some places no missionary has been before but I believe that was about it. Scott is horrid on details so maybe when I hear the story from someone else, it will be more dramatic. lol. He couldn’t quit talking about how beautiful the country was and how friendly everyone was.
And he brought back lots of goodies. I got 3 or 4 shirts, a dress, a skirt, a bracelet, ring and pillow covers. I was incredibly impressed he clothing shopped for me with a bunch of guys. Go Scott! I love getting stuff I can use though from trips. No random trinkets for me, thanks. He brought the girls handmade necklaces and purses. They loved their “real” necklaces.
So his parents ended up coming over here to fix dinner which worked out much better. Scott’s eyes were drooping around 7 which was 2am his time and he had been up since 4:30 am his time. Needless to say he’s been in bed. The girls kept wanting to sit with him and even wanted to lay in bed with him after he went to sleep. Lexi moreso than Emma. Sweet girls missed their daddy, that’s for sure.
Tomorrow he’s already back to work having to do the prom talk at the high school. He doesn’t actually go back on shift until Friday. So we have a little bit of time to get back in the groove of things. It’s good to have him home.
