big day at our house
Today’s the day. After 18 months in Japan, my parents fly home. Actually they’ve been on planes for 12 hours already. It takes almost 24 hours to fly home from Japan. It’s a long ways. My whole family is excited, but I’ve been getting a kick out of my sister Cathy calling all her sisters to keep us updated on the countdown. We have managed to talk our sister Rebecca into staying an extra day (She’s driving from Portland today and staying for the weekend.) My husband has a long day of work today. I’m already worrying about him getting off work in time. I don’t want to miss the big welcome home at the airport.
