Well, Grandma Joyce, Pres. Makrina, and Symeon are on a flight back home to the US. In tribute to them and all their help, here are some photos Grandma Joyce took shortly after they arrived a couple weeks ago.
Above Grandma is holding Benjamin. This photo best sums up her trip -- Grandma spent A LOT of time holding babies!
Here is Pres. Makrina with a dazed and confused Symeon wondering what happened to the clocks after that long trip...
And here are some bath time photos. Above is Benjamin.
The ones above and below are of Paul.
And here's Phoebe, whom I just brought back from communing at the Liturgy for St. Silouan in the chapel in the woods above our house.
