I'm back!


Finally our Internet is up again! Even after getting a new modem we were having trouble, but I think it's finally fixed!

If you have been following the count down on my side bar you know that Andy's homecoming is almost here. He will be home Sunday afternoon. He will be losing time coming back. He leaves Korea at 11:00 Sunday morning and arrives in the States at 10:00 am Sunday morning!

He called tonight to tell us that his Internet and phone will be done tomorrow so we won't hear from him again until we see him on Sunday. He was getting ready to go to another base when he called. They are having a full day of farewell ceremonies for their base. The president of South Korea will be there to thank them for their service.

Be prepared to see pictures of the big homecoming on Monday!

Oh Mari, I'm so thrilled to see you back online but even more so to know that it's SO close to Andy arriving back in the States.

I can NOT wait to see all the photos and hear all about it. Give him a big hug from us and thank you him from one military family to another :)

I'm so excited for you Mari!!! And I know the feeling. Not with a son, but with a brother.
My brother has been in East Timor for one year and in Lebanon for another year. And now he's preparing to go to India.
I look forward to seeing the pictures of Andy's arrival.

Mari,

Just checking to see how things are going and saw that your Internet was down. I hate when that happens.

I'm so glad that Andy will be home on Sunday. I know how excited you must be. I'm looking forward to hearing all the news and seeing lots of photos.

Wishing you a great weekend.
Blessings,
Mary

Glad your back, that is frustrating when the net is down..
I can feel the excitement on Andy's homecoming!!

Musicaljean said...

Two wonderful things at once - your internet returns and your son returns! Doesn't get much better than that!

In one month Thyda will be returning from her deployment. We're excited about that, but of course, Ray is a whole lot more so!

I wonder if you'll sleep tonight! Or pay attention at church! I can't wait to see your pictures.

My brother is on the missionfield so we don't see him much, but there is great fanfare when he and his family comes to visit on furlough!

Renee said...

Enjoy your time with Andy and your family!

Deb said...

Glad your back!! Have a great time with Andy, and get CRAZY:)

The Curnews said...

Woot woot! I guess he's there by now and you're having a great visit with him!

Here it's noon right now, so I think where you are it's 2 or 3 in the morning. I'm not sure if you're 2 or 3 hours ahead of us here. Since we just sprung our clocks ahead an hour. Do you Spring ahead one hour in the Spring and then Fall back an hour in the Fall like we do here? I doubt you do. I'm pretty sure that cooky thing only happens here. ;)

Jennifer said...

I have an award for you come check it out.
Smiles!
