Grandpa came home! Nathan’s dad, who has been in Iraq since last September, got a little furlough and is home visiting for the next couple of weeks.
The kids were so excited about him coming home that they each made a big poster for him to welcome him home.
They make a very cute welcoming committee, don’t you think?
Then lots hugs followed his arrival.
Dallin even tried to help him in with his bag, but um, it was a little heavy for him.
Best of all, we were a little afraid that Layton wouldn’t have anything to do with him because Layton is always hesitant around people that he doesn’t really know well. But even after 7 months, Layton must have remembered him, because he went right up and gave Grandpa a big hug!
We’re so happy to have Grandpa home, if only for a little while! At least when he goes back it will only be for about 3 more months. Then we’ll have him home for good!
