April 15th

We've been counting down.

The kids haven't had seen him in days.

He's been home so late and gone so early we've prayed, brushed hands in a quick crossing of paths, but that's all.

At 6PM his car pulled in.

His favorite people waiting on the grass to greet him.

We're just a little excited.

Daddy's home!

  1. We both did audit instead of tax but I can remember the count downs for 10-K deadlines too.

  5. Hooray, I am so excited for you guys. Dave had to work late a few days this week and I had two long Saturdays with the kids, and that seemed like AGES. Have fun!

  6. Courtney - BOTH of you are accountants? Wow.

    Steph - Sweet that you would remember. Bruce is involved enough in the industry, I'm sure it affects him too.

    Rachel - thank you friend. "Made it through" we did.

    Bonnie - I know you know. How is it a GS? Does David still have a tax season?

    Shells - AGES - exactly.

    Mimi - Yes, we're celebrating!

  7. So glad for you guys! We made a similar sign this week for Dave and hung it on the door. He'd been in Vietnam all week, and after two delays he finally snuck in in the middle of the night. Each time I grumble, he reminds me of how bad you have it. You're a trooper. Thanks for the inspiration and example.

  8. Bonnie, I confess I'm a little verklempt, too. Cath, I love your sign! Another great idea.

    I don't know when I learned this from my mom, but at some point she taught me verbally or by example that one of the best traditions to create for my kids was the daily (or in your case seasonal) Daddy homecoming ritual. I didn't realize what a gift those rituals would be to my husband until I started witnessing his visible physical reaction to the kids' cheers upon his triumphal crossing of the threshhold.

    It appears that your kids have quite a physical reaction, too! Play, tackle, squeal, smile!
