YES!!  Six wonderful days in June!!  I loved every moment.  The arrival, the family dinners, and the farewell.  Those moments were precious to me.  Just knowing they were down the street was comforting to me.  Getting to hug them both.  Seeing their happy faces in the pictures they were posting for friends back home.  It all made me very happy and gave me memories that I will keep in my heart forever.  The back story is long and arduous.  More than I will write in this blog.  But, to see my son at age 58, a successful  business man, coming across the street with his beautiful wife Jean and a big suitcase made my heart leap with joy.

When you live here like I do (almost four years), it is quite different. My lifestyle has settled down to a routine.  But, Steve and I explored like that when we arrived.  And, I think they had fun and will, hopefully, have good memories.  I know they were glad to go home.  Haha.  They were exhausted from all that exercise.  But, nothing slowed them down.  (By the way, I cannot take credit for ANY of the photography.  I did not feel like taking pictures.  I was memorizing looks, smiles, and faces – all special to me during that weekend when time stopped for me.
