Imagine traveling all the way home from Afghanistan -- such a long trip -- and wondering the whole way how it would play out when you went to surprise your children at school.
This may be Air Force Tech Sgt. Terry Fryery's most challenging mission yet. Surprise not one, but two kids at Las Brisas Elementary school.
First, he walked into 6½-year-old son Terry's first grade classroom.
"Terry, look behind you," he said, then hugged his son. "Did I surprise you?"
Then it's down the hall to 5-year-old London's kindergarten classroom.
As he hugged his daughter, she exclaimed, "Daddy!"
He hugged her and said, "You look beautiful."
"I am so proud of them -- to come home and see them, they are the reason why I come home," he said.
Fryery signed the kids out of school for the day.
"What do you want to do today now that you're leaving school?"
London replied, "Go home with my daddy."
I don't think they will do any homework. In fact, Sgt. Fryery said their plan is just to be together.
