And another homecoming!

So I haven't had the opportunity yet to do an *early morning* homecoming, until this morning. Yes, I was up at 3:45 to get ready to be at the gym by 4:30. And.... yeah, they didn't arrive til 6:30-ish due to flight delays. The feeling in the gym was anxious, excited, tense, and sleepy! Kids were having fun running all over the gym but it was definitely subdued due to the early morning hour.

Miss S had been waiting for over 2 weeks to see her husband. She was very gracious in all of the delays but those last couple hours I believe were tortuous for her, as well as all the other spouses and parents patiently waiting. Here's Miss S's story.

Watching... and waiting... with her good friend who was also waiting patiently to see her love too.

There he is *squeal*!
Where is he???

Running to her LOVE!

Leaping into his arms!

Back in his arms again... FINALLY!

The world disappears in an instant!

Have you seen a more joyful expression on a loving wife who has endured a year without her husband?

Not lettin' go!

Smiles and contentment abound!

I love how her nose scrunches up when she looked at her husband here!

Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhh right where she belongs!
