October is for homecomings - the cool evenings of high school football games, the college weekends with alumni returning, hugs, laughter, and tears as friends reunite.

This has been a wonderful week of homecomings for our household.  This last Sunday, as we celebrated our oldest daughter's birthday, we had a huge surprise in store for her and the rest of the family.  Our son, who has been living and working in Africa for a little over five years, was moving back to the states - and back to the area where most of our family still lives.  Once he knew his arrival date (his sister's birthday), we worked together to pull off the big surprise.  While everyone knew he was coming home, they did not know he was arriving that day.  You can see the beauty of the homecoming :)

There were hugs, tears, and laughter all around, and I know I didn't stop smiling all day.

And the homecoming has continued as we welcomed our oldest son and his girlfriend here yesterday.  They are here from Florida for a family wedding, and we are thrilled to be visiting with them as it has been such a long time since he has been home as well.  Our agenda today includes some shopping, a winery visit, and dinner out together - looking forward to it :)

I am treasuring these homecomings - these precious family moments.  Hope you are having some special homecomings as well.
