We got a phone call from Alex this evening, telling us that he had 4 days off this weekend for the Veterans Day holiday and he was booking a flight home from TX! Woo Hoo! I promised him homemade apple pie, so I better get baking!
The cool thing is, we immediately called Sarah and Eric at college to let them know that their brother was coming home, and they both changed their weekend plans and are coming home too! Both had friends from Raleigh driving out to Boone this weekend, but they called them to tell them to stay put - that they'd be coming here instead! How awesome is that? I feel blessed beyond measure, that my children have such a close relationship. And I CANNOT WAIT to have all 7 of us under the same roof, even for a day! Yes, I know, I'm a sap. Completely and unapologetically. I love my family.
