One of my favorite moments . . . picking up a child at the airport. Last Wednesday, I picked up my son, Tad, home from two weeks in India! Before that, he finished his junior year of college in Illinois. He’s hardly home because he’s on the basketball team. The bball season goes through the Christmas holidays—we usually only see him briefly throughout the school year. So his homecoming each summer is a very big deal.
