Five days

We’ve been on our own, the boys and I, since Thursday, when Neil left for the World Science Fiction Convention in Montreal.  We have separations like this from time to time, but this has been the longest one.  Even though we got to see him every day via Skype, we’re pretty much ready to have him back in person.

We thought it might be nice to welcome him home with a little bit of fanfare.

This is the birthday bunting I made about six months ago.  Today, the kids and I each decorated a third of the letters in the words, and used masking tape to attach them to the fabric.  When we’re done celebrating Neil’s homecoming, we can take off those letters and replace them with a new message.

The hardest part of the whole process is figuring out where and how to hang it up!
