Back home and trying to decompress

It was an emotional five days in southern California. I flew home late Sunday night, worked yesterday, and went to bed early. It’s all still raw, though I know this feeling will fade. We managed to get one decent family photo taken on Thursday night (after dinner and putting together the photo boards). Daughter’s fiance and my Sweetie are missing as they didn’t arrive until Friday and Saturday, respectfully, but here we are…kids (less Brother #2 who did not come), grandkids, and significant others (mostly).


Front row (L-R): Me, Brother #1, Brother #3

Back row: Brother #1’s wife, my daughter, Brother #4, his son, Mom, Brother #3’s son, Brother #4’s wife, Brother #1’s youngest, Brother #3’s S.O., Brother #1’s oldest.

More photos to come later.
