I'm Soooooo Excited!!!

I was going to do a book review today, but I just can't think straight! I'm soooooo excited. Grant (my wonderful missionary son) is returning home right now. He is on Korean Air Flight #788 and will arrive in Seoul Korea in 22 minutes. He then has a 3 hour layover and then takes Delta Flight #7859 to Los Angeles (back in the USA after almost 2 years!). The bummer is that he has a 3 hour layover in California too. Then on to Delta Flight #1180, and that will arrive tomorrow afternoon (the 20th) at the Salt Lake City airport, where I will be waiting impatiently to see my son come down that escalator.

We are tracking his flights on www.flightstats.com. It's fun to see the updates about where he is. Grant is traveling with 2 other missionaries - Elder Rodney Tonga and Elder Spencer Bateman. I bet they are having so much fun. Grant met Elder Tonga in the MTC 2 years ago. They both served in the Fukuoka mission, but never as companions, so I know Grant is enjoying seeing Elder Tonga again. I'm hoping they get some sleep at some point, but I'm sure they are excited to get home and probably won't be able to sleep.

I've been a big cry baby today. I don't know what's wrong with me. I think that the second I see him, the tears will start to flow again. I'm just so happy that our family will finally be together again. I can't wait to see the huge changes in Grant (I hope he hasn't completely changed, because I really miss the old Grant).

Think about us tomorrow - wish us luck. Pray that Grant and his companions arrive safely.

19 hours and counting.....

I'm coming over from Mormon Mommy Blogs, asking for your help. I am in the running for a round trip airfare paid ticket to Connecticut, to meet a friend I became acquainted with through blogging. She is a super fun person and is holding this contest. I entered a funny story titled "Grapejuice Floaties, Now Marry Me." The person whose story receives the most votes will win a trip to meet this generous lady, whom I'm hoping to meet. The voting ends tonight-midnight. I used to be ahead but there is a story coming up from behind out of nowhere, and it's a tight race now. I would so much appreciate your help. Her blog is www.becausemomsaidso.blogspot.com and the voting is on the sidebar on the right. "Grapejuice, Floaties" Just go there and cast a vote for me, please. Thanks so much-you're awesome! ♥♥
