Brothers Reunited

 There's an extra strong under-current of happiness and gratitude flowing through our home these days.  Being all together after time apart is the cause, I'm sure.  :)

I'm continuing to ask Josiah lots of questions about the choir tour - "how was breakfast at the hotel?"..."did you have assigned times for breakfast like we did last year on tour because the room got too crowded?"..."where did you get together to play games like Dutch Blitz?"..."did you ever get too noisy and have to be told to be quiet?"..."was it hard to decide what to do during the days you had free time and whose group to go with?"...and on...and on...and on.  :)  He is so patient with me.  :)

While he was gone, we talked on the phone a few times and texted more than that; but of course, there's nothing like the face to face communication that I'm relishing so much.  Besides that, I'm also enjoying things like seeing him laying on the couch reading a book again, hearing him say "thanks for making a great lunch for us, Mom!" as he gets up from the table, and watching him interact with his siblings.  He is a gem.
They are all gems!!
