Jordan's Two Week Visit

Jordan arrived on September 1st and left today.  Unbeknownst to her, we four parents had planned a surprise, keeping it a secret from all the siblings except for Bethany.  Little did Jordan and the others know that Caleb and Bethany were flying back with her!  So, Jordan's now home with her beloved family, and our two eldest are in South Carolina too!  They'll be returning Monday. 

They say a picture's worth a thousand words, so I suppose this next post will be the equivalent of one hundred and forty-eight thousand words!! Could be worse, dear readers, because we've GREATLY whittled down our collection!! 

 Unfortunately, no pics yet of Jordan's surprised reaction when we told her last night that she wouldn't be flying home alone.  They're on our camera which is in South Carolina.  Suffice to say she was shocked!  Very pleasantly so!  As were her siblings when Caleb and Bethany rounded the corner in the airport where they were waiting for Jordan!  Way too much fun!!!!
