Our delightful daughter has returned to home soil. Her flight from Cairo to Jordan to NYC went without a hitch. When we collected her at JFK, she was bright eyed, chipper and ready for some family.After all the counting down in anticipation of her return, it feels just a tad off to have her suddenly here, before us. She’s up in her room, looking at through the four-foot tall stack of boxes that has accumulated over the last few weeks (a new cell phone, new iPod, yarn, more yarn, some yarn, a computer keyboard, etc.)Of course, this also means the next countdown has begun…eleven weeks before she returns to Washington, D.C. for her final year of college, and the beginning of her career. We intend to make the most of it.
