In some ways it seems like it was yesterday that we were driving Nick to the airport on January 1st, 2011, hugging, and saying our goodbyes . In other ways however, it seemed like forever since we had seen him. Now it was April 3rd, 2011, and we were hugging Nick once again, only this time it was a welcome home greeting! Boy oh boy, was it good to see him! His hair had grown quite a bit longer, he is much more fluent in Spanish, he saw some amazing sights, met some wonderful people, and definitely lost a few pounds making him even more long and lanky! We all had to get our picture taken giving lots of hugs...so happy to see him!
After almost 24 hours of travel, he was finally home!
Some of the staff members from the volunteer house gave him gifts:
