Home again!

November 30th concluded a wonderful phase of our lives as we returned from our mission in Guatemala to spend the next 18 months at home and visiting kids and grandkids, take care of needed dental and medical appointments, arrange for a double knee replacement in January, and take an exotic trip or two prior to our going back to Guatemala in June, 2013, for another mission in the area offices. The following are a few photos, probably of greater interest to family than anyone else.

Name tags removed, following release from mission.
