One year ago right about now… we received the second most important phone call a waiting parent could get – the Travel Call! The Library wasn’t open, so no one was answering the phone. Maria from CB called Matt at work when she couldn’t reach me. When Matt got the news, he tried to call me – but of course he couldn’t because of the whole phone thing. In the mean time, I had e-mailed Maria to tell her if she had any good news for us, she could call me at a certain extension since I wasn’t in my office and didn’t know I had voice mail (I know – confusing), and instead I got an email back, “Haven’t you spoken to Matt yet? – Go get your son!”
The rest of the day was a blur. I couldn’t concentrate so I went home early, and poor Matt was in the midst of trying to teach and trying to arrange accommodations and plane tickets. I have goose bumps thinking about it again. And a huge grin on my face!
