  1. What a precious photo! It brings mixed emotions though. I know homecomings will be fabulous, but I’m not looking forward to what come before them!

  2. Aww, that’s great! Homecomings are the best part of this life, aren’t they?

  3. It was a lovely photo to take, I have another one of a daughter and father. It really tugs at your heart.
