We barely got to the airport on time because he told us his plane was arriving almost 40 minutes later than it actually did. We took advantage of driving to the "big" city to get the boys some school shoes and were only in the mall for about 20 minutes but had we lingered even a few minutes longer we would have missed Kevin walking down the security ramp.
The boys were all about making signs but then got a bit self-conscious when we got to the airport and they realized that it was slightly different than standing with hundreds of other families on a field or in a gym on post. Michael didn't care and once they saw their dad, the other boys didn't care either. Kevin started crying as soon as he saw us which made people watching us start to cry. I guess they were confused until they read the signs the boys had because Kevin wasn't in uniform.
It felt so good to be together again. Now I just have to remember that homecoming is an event and reintegration is a process! Happy Days for now...The Albrecht Squad is reunited!!!
