Welcome Home Elder DeLange

On June 17th around 12:00PM, my little brother Jason got home from his mission in Detroit, MI. He flew into Sacramento, CA, which isn't quite his "home" but that's where the family is. Jason was greeted by my mom, dad, sister, grandma and grandpa DeLange and a family from my parents ward who happened to be at the airport at the same time. Eric and I weren't able to go out to California for it, which I was a little sad about. Most of my family will be coming out to Utah in a few days which made us not being able to go out there alright. Anyways, while I was at work I was checking his flight status online so I could feel a little bit of the excitement. I also told my sister to send me a picture of him from her phone. I went to lunch about 15 minutes after he arrived so I got to call him and talk to him for a few minutes. That was fun. It sounds like he is adjusting just fine. He signed onto facebook that night and then got a new cell phone the next day. He wasn't wasting anytime reconnecting with people! Eric and I are very excited for him to be home and even more excited for him to be out here in the fall so that we can have some family out here again. Welcome home Jason!
