I was uploading all Zach’s photos to Costco this last week. Uhhh….1500 of them. Yeah, you heard me. And that’s not even counting the last six months or so. While I’d originally planned to drop them into page protectors and have it ready before he came home, I had a better thought to wait for him to come home so we could put them in together as a family and he could talk about them. (Also, this lets him pick the ones he wants on display where there may be a couple of the same shot involved.)

Anyway, came across a couple of these and thought it would be fun to share and compare with the ones we’ll be taking today. I plan on taking another one in the car if I can. It will be dark though.

He said he put on 20-30 pounds, but has now lost all that because he’s been in the English area for the past 3-4 months and walks everywhere and isn’t eating all the palm oil of the African food. 
Time goes by sooooo fast! His mission has gone by sooooo fast. Even the girls think so. 
Crazy.
Surreal.
The decibel level will be increasing greatly in the house now . . . all the voices . . . the teasing . . . and music, I’m sure.
