I can hardly wait!

Tomorrow I drive to Atlanta to pick my Dad from the airport. I haven't seen him in almost five years (he was here when Bilal was born), so it feels like this visit is long overdue. If it weren't for Skype I think we'd feel it even more. It is great to at least video chat with him once a week. It makes me so glad he embraced technology. They live in the UK, so it will be a direct flight from Heathrow into Atlanta for them. Just hoping that the high alert status after the death of Osama Bin Laden doesn't make immigration more difficult for them.

It's terrible that I don't have a recent picture of us to share on this post (well, it has been five years!). We have to remedy that when he comes here. So excited!

So excited for you ... I surely couldn't imagine my dad living that far away or going that long without seeing him ... I take for granted my dad only lives 4 hours away (which to me is very far) and I only see him a few times a year of course my mom has no problems hopping in the car and driving but my dad has some health issues that prevents him from always traveling and my finances prevent from traveling as much as I like ... thank you for reminding me to be thankful I get to at least see him as often as I do!!! I hope you and your family enjoy the trip with your father and I am praying for a safe and uneventful flight and easy passing through immigration <3
