|The Phelps Family Together Again!|
Elder Phelps arrived home on Wednesday, June 25! He had a direct flight from Paris, France (which they almost missed because the flight from Bucharest was an hour late!). Consequently, his luggage didn't arrive with him.

When Austin came into the house he said, "It looks so big!" We had completely remodeled the kitchen/living room area and opened it up while he was gone. He took everything in for a few minutes and unloaded a few things from his carry on that he had brought back. Then, it was down to his room (or as Carson called it, "the man cave.") I made him a quilt out of his soccer and school T-shirts and jerseys.
He spent the rest of the evening unpacking boxes in his room and putting things away (Jensen had occupied his room while he was gone). His bags finally arrived at 11 PM the next day!
It's so good to have him home! His mission report will be on July 13th at 9 AM.
