My friend, Carla, pegged it. I was giddy this morning in anticipation of Matthew's return. He arrived at 3:00 this afternoon and we are sooooo happy to have him home. This ends the summer of international travel for the Pinckney boys. Matthew had a wonderful trip to England. Enjoy just a few shots from his travels...
William Shakespeare's house in Stratford
Stratford "under" Avon during the rainiest summer in 250 years!
They needed their rain gear, to be sure, this wet summer
The Eagle and Child in Oxford where C.S. Lewis and J.R.R. Tolkein met
The bath at Bath
The white cliffs of Dover
Big Ben - which was being repaired while they were in London so they never heard the bells
We are relishing this last evening with the four boys who are still at home. As I write, they are in the other room looking at Burkina Faso pictures, making funny comments and laughing a lot. In a little while we're headed to the Melting Pot for chocolate fondue and sweet memory making before Thomas leaves tomorrow. We are a certainly a family of comings and goings. How thankful I am that the Lord watches over our "coming and going both now and forevermore." (Psalm 121:8)
