Dad's home!

Chris' dad was home, really for the first time since he has been long haul trucking. It has been about 2 months since we saw him, and it was a lot of fun to hang out with him for the weekend. He was able to get home on Thursday, and goes back out on the road on Tuesday.

<---Grandpa with his 2 grandsons, Cameron and Justice, who happened to be the oldest and youngest of the grandchildren!

The girls were so excited to see him, too! They have talked today a lot about how sad they are that they don't know when they will see their grandpa again. They are also anticipating being able to see him, and greatly looking forward to it!
Grandma with Madison and Justice --->
Callie was probably the hardest one to watch over the weekend. 2 months was long enough for her to not to remember who her grandpa was...we spent a lot of time pointing to him and saying "Grandpa" and by Sunday, she is comfortable enough to go to him again...it is just hard to watch her not know who he is when they have always been so involved with our children's lives.
He is hoping to be able to make it home once a month now, so hopefully we will get to see him more often...and hopefully Callie will remember her grandpa! I am hoping that it won't be much longer before she is able to remember someone for a couple months of not seeing them...then we get to play the same game with Justice...for now, he is easy - he doesn't care who is holding him as long as he is being held.
