Let me catch you up:
Superman is home for good! Woot! Yes, indeed! After almost three years (!) of contracting overseas, Superman came home. Best of all, we managed to "sneak" him home a month earlier than the kids expected! We pulled off the last, best suprise of the journey. The kids thought their dad was coming home on December 1, so imagine the surprise when the two younger kids registered the sound of my car pulling into the garage, registered the sound of the door opening, didn't even look up when someone walked up the stairs, and then caught sight of their dad! It was amazing. We kept the surprises going by inviting Charming to meet up with us for dinner and got to see the look on his face when he walked into the restaurant and saw his father! Seriously, being able to surprise your adult and almost adult children is NOT easy and oh-so fun...
|The spider knew my secret!|
The next night we had dinner at the house and the boys decided to play around with Nagle family deadlifts. (Seriously, Crossfit families are just weird!)
|Boys will be boys...the hardest part? Holding on to the bar!|
|"I've got you, Dad!"|
|Valiant was up next...|
|Buttercup had no problem holding on!|
|But she found it a little more difficult to be the bar!|
I hope you'll enjoy the ride as I fast forward you through the holidays and the projects and the other good stuff that makes up a normal life...I'll give you a few hints of what is coming up: Scrabble, stairs, bed, hearts, and frames!
