The excitement at home built. Then this happened. Benny Bear met his great grandpa.

Dad commented, "Oh, your Mom would have loved this." It's true. In the midst of having a great time with Dad, we are newly aware that Mom is not with him. From the time they were in college, they ministered together.

We've moved a lot. Each home feels truly like "HOME," once the adult kids and Mom and Dad visit. The realization hit tonight that Mom will never see this home. It's a sad ache, in the middle of the fun and joy having Dad here.
I know he was thinking the same thing. We've shared comments about Mom and it's good....and we all miss her terribly, but we are so very thankful she is safe with Jesus and not experiencing any more horrendous cancer pain.

We missed her when we played Farkle. Grandpa promised to whoop Alex.....Alex won both games.
Dad is a much better visitor than the moose - though we'd like them to put in an appearance for him while he is here.
Note - there will be videos uploaded when I have time to edit.
