There will be a whole other person included in pictures and stories. Someone who hasn't been around since the beginning on August. Yes, that's right. Eric is coming home. Friday.
I am still in "I'll believe it when I see him" mode. The kids, however, are in "is he here yet? is he here yet? how about now? how about now?" mode.
In case you have forgotten, this is what he looks like
This is probably exactly what he will look like when we see him Friday, except I expect the smile to be much bigger, as he will be arriving home (he was about to leave in this picture). And he will probably have three children and one wife hanging on him.
