Finally Family Arrives!

On Wednesday night, after a 15-1/2 hour flight from
California, my mom, and our son, Teyler (19 years old) arrived on Island.
The fan club of our immediate family joyfully and loudly met them at the airport. Tears flooded my eyes as I greeted my mom with a kiss and a lei of Plumeria (made by Katie and Noelle). Our son was so big I hardly recognized him!

Grabbing the 200 pounds of luggage plus carry-ons, (I had my mom bring MANY supplies from Costco, e.g. toilet paper, salami, chocolate chips, etc.) we rushed to the college where I needed to teach the last session of my summer counseling class. My students warmly welcomed my mother and son who sat in on part of the class. The following day, they told me they were quite impressed with my Power Point slides, to which I flashed Eric a triumphant smile, broadly grinned, and gave Eric the “humph” look. (Eric has informed me that I am ridiculously compulsive about my slides. Me? Compulsive? Never!!!)

From that moment forward, it has been one big rush of activities. We will write more about those on a later post. For now, I’ve got to get to sleep because tomorrow will be another day of non-stop motion.

I know exactly the emotions that you all were experiencing and I have thought about you and prayed for you many times.....I just know this will be a wonderful time for you all together!
