In the late morning on Friday, we received confirmation that my brother, Trevor–who has been deployed for eight months–would be coming HOME that night. We were all so excited and anxious to see him again. All day, any time I thought about what the moment would be like, I’d get all misty!
We had known for a few days that he was coming home (he had been back in the U.S. for almost two weeks already), but didn’t know exactly WHEN. Thankfully, we were all prepared with homemade signs and ready to drag ourselves out to make the trek to the airport to give him a big hero’s welcome home.
Unfortunately, Michael had to stay back at home with a sleeping Nora, so I rode with my mom and grandma to the airport, where Hunter found us and led us to the waiting area.
While we waited, Hunter posed with his flag and the sign we made for him. So cute, and he was SO EXCITED!
It is so wonderful to have him home again.
We are all so proud, so relieved, and so thankful.
Welcome home, Trevor.
P.S. Sorry for the obnoxious spacing. Blogger forced me over to its “new” interface again, and this time it’s permanent. I think changes will be coming soon… as in Heather Drive’s move to WordPress. I just need to work up the energy, time, and guts to make the leap. If anyone out there has experience, tutorials, or tips to share, please let me know!
AboutI'm Heather. I'm 31 and have been married to Michael for five years. Together, we have two beautiful little girls we love more than anything, and a miniature dachshund who drives us crazy. I'm a full-time working mom who has very little time for my own "stuff" these days, like home improvement, cooking/baking, cake decorating, and photography. Despite the team not making the playoffs since 1999, I'm STILL a Buffalo Bills fan, which I think speaks to my loyalty AND sense of humor. I can't wait to pick up the pace with travel again some day... you know, when we're done being ruled by tiny fists. Welcome to my blog.
