August 7, 2013, provided beautiful summer weather and another heart-warming experience. Ready for this? Hevynn definitely was! The rest of the kids, cousin Ina, Aunty Nei and Dad kind of were. Mom? Not really, but she knew it was going to happen anyway, so why not have everyone strike a Japanese photo pose and get Hevynn on her way?
Within a matter of what seemed like seconds, we unloaded Heimuli Shimai's luggage, took a family photo with Scheffler Shimai (so Mom could send it to Sheri!). L to R: Norma, Mom, Hema, Harrison, Sister Heimuli, Sister Scheffler, Aunty Nei, Dad and Houston.
Houston scoops Hevynn up into a big goodbye hug.
