Nikolaus on R & R in Connecticut

My son Nikolaus was able to go home from Afghanistan for two weeks on R & R a couple of weeks ago.  Because his unit is based out of Connecticut, that is where they flew him back to and he didn't have enough time or money to come down here to Florida to see us, but that was OK, I was able to talk to him and text back & forth a lot.  There was also a going away party for my niece who is moving to California with her husband and daughter while he was home, so the whole family got together.  Nikolaus sent a photo to me of himself and my other son Alexander from the party, they both look so grown up.



I miss them so much, but am really glad that they are both coming to visit this fall when Nikolaus gets home from his deployment for good.  They are going to try and make it at the same time because it has been 3 years since we have all been together.  Keep your fingers crossed for me.....

Oh, Lorie. I will certainly be hoping it works out. I can't imagine how you long to be with them.

Good looking boys Lorie, so glad you got some moments with him while he was here, even if text. At least it was something and on home soil.

You have a couple nice looking boys. I also hope it works out this fall for all of you. Have a nice weekend. Boy, three years must seem like a life time for you.

You forgot to mention they are handsome, but I guess we can see that in the photo. I am glad he got some R&R, I hope he will be home for good soon.

Girl, you are going to be on cloud nine when they come see you! They are absolutely beautiful (don't tell them I said that) boys and they had to have gotten it from their momma!

Look at those hunky boys. They do look grown up momma, but I see two "young pups". They have such baby faces. Very nice to have a picture of them together for you, I'm sure.

Hope he had a great time on his R&R and at the party.
