We wanted to share in our joy that was a surprise visit back to the states. We returned to Oregon after 22 months of our Peace Corps service, and our family wasn’t expecting us to return until our service was fully completed. Mamma Nilsen and Andrew have birthdays one week apart, so while our official reason to take a short trip home was to take the GRE, we couldn’t pass up surprising family in the process. What fun!
**It totally sounds like Andrew says he’s turning 20. It was actually his 28th birthday. He might have been excited. 😉
