Steve got home last night
after 10 days in Australia and Indonesia.
I'm used to his travel schedule
as are the kids
but this was a long one.
I shouldn't complain...
all the years we spent in the military
prepared me for him being gone.
Steve brings gifts for everyone
when he returns.
Batik's for us from Jakarta...
A rugby ball for Will from Australia..
He's also started a doll collection for Hannah...
one from every country he visits.
He always smuggles kinder eggs home too.
When we lived in Germany
our landlord, or Oma as Stephen called her,
used to give these to him all the time.
Apparently they were banned here in the U.S.
because it contained a "non nutritive object imbedded in it"
Give me a break.
Anyway, the kids love them.
A chocolate egg with a toy inside.
We're glad you're home!!
