As many of you might know, I have a husband that is PERFECT! Except, that he loses things. Alot. So when he went on the family reunion camping trip with our girls while the boys were at trek, I sent the camera with him so I could see all the fun they had. (Being in my 3rd trimester I opted to stay home and stay sane. The heat would have killed me, not to mention sleeping on the ground. Sleeping at all can be hard enough.) We'll I knew better. Will lost the camera. UG!
I ran out and bought a camera that was not fancy, but had good zoom and mega pixels, etc. I bought a sony. I didn't know that a sony used a memory stick and was not compatible to my computer. UG!!!
The result is some great pictures from picking the boys up from trek with no way to use them. (If anyone has any idea's that would be great)
Picking the boys up was AWESOME! We got up to the trail about an hour early to make sure we didn't miss them. We watched them come down a hill to where we were all waiting. As each family went by I watched for my boys. I could hardly wait to see them. I saw Conner who pulled away from the handcart long enough to give Will, Brooklynn and me a hug, but I never saw Brennan.
They met briefly with their families once they arrived, and that's where I found Brennan. Huddled in a family circle with his family. I watched them as they knelt together in family prayer and my heart swelled. I saw my sweet boy and the joy on his face. I knew he had been placed with a good family and was happy. I watched their family hug, and then Brennan hugged his ma and pa. It was a very tender moment for me that I really can't describe.
Once we gathered Brennan and Conner and their gear, and they had said their goodbyes, we piled into the car. OH the smell. UG. Then they took off their shoes!! Luckily the smell was tempered by their stories of the trail and their families. I am so happy to have them home. I am thrilled that they both had ma's and pa's that they clicked with. I am thankful! (even with no camera)
