Kris made it home safe and sound today at noon. After we had our own reunion, we went to Joyce's to pick up the kids. The boys ran to him and welcomed him home with bear hugs. Ross in particular leaped into Kris's arms and held on tight for several minutes. You can see the emotion in the pictures. Hope was a little nervous at first, but she never cried, and she's been smiling and saying, "Daddy daddy!" ever since. Thank you to Mom and Bonnie for helping me hang on to a few shreds of sanity these last two weeks--they've been the toughest. You took on so much, and I can never thank you enough.
Kris, I love you so much. We are all thrilled to have you home again!
