Oh happy day! We are so blessed, happy & excited to have Anthony home. We have all been watched over and supported during this long separation. We are just enjoying & loving any time together. It's nice to just talk to him & hear the experiences that have impacted him. Our Father in Heaven has truly kept us strong, blessed and protected.
So, as for the arrival (: what an adventure with mommy locking the keys in the car (on the base). Thankfully we were running ahead of schedule..with a hanger and rubber-band I avoided a call to AAA. (whew) Once I got E out of the car at the squadron he needed to be changed, again. We made it to the parachute bay & talked with other families who were also waiting. We saw the plane land & then waited anxiously for the bus to reappear. At this point Ethan was bouncing around & looking at planes and helicopters. I was following him and doing a lot of pacing. With signs in hand, we watched him come of the bus & then made our way out of the 'waiting crowd' to meet him. Such joy, there are not words to truly describe the emotions of reuniting & both having passed through so much. We love & miss you. Enjoy a safe & happy week. Love, Chelsea, Anthony & Ethan
