He’s home!

22 Feb

Finally my husband is home from Afghanistan!

I haven’t had much time to blog so I’m just going to make this short and sweet.

Royal and I surprised Scott at the airport in Florida. The original plan was that we would wait for Scott to fly into Colorado then we would all drive back to Florida, but I couldn’t stand the thought of him coming home to an empty house and it was torture knowing he was in the US but we weren’t able to see him! The “so close but still so far away” thing was too much to stand!! I booked a round trip ticket and just guessed a date that Scott might be home. Amazingly we only beat him into Florida by 6 hours! What are the chances that I would book on the exact right day?! Such a God thing!

Scott was in complete shock and couldn’t even figure out how we got there! haha. Jet lag at it’s finest!


It was worth all the effort to see the look on his face and to have the whole week, before coming back to Colorado, to adjust and soak in our family time.

Thank you to everyone who kept us in your thoughts and prayers during this deployment! Scott is safely home and we’re so thankful to be able to return to our daily lives for a little while!

Praise God!!

    I know Scott knows what a compassionate wife and mother you are. A lot like Grandma Jean.

    Alyssa & Scott, I believe that so many events re: Scott’s deployment and return have been orchestrated by our Lord! It is evident in HIS timing and in so many other ways, that Jesus’s hand has been on Scott, Alyssa, & baby Royal to protect you three, and to bring you all back together as a sweet family!! love and prayers, always, MOM (Ann)
