N. HANOVER TWP., Pa. – Waiting patiently for a surprise visitor to arrive.
Kids at the Goddard School in New Hanover Township, Montgomery County, had a few guesses about Thursday’s special guest, but the person who came through the door was far cooler.
“I’m happy to be home with my family, you know, you miss them,” said U.S. Staff Sgt. Kyle Woods.
Woods has been deployed to Qatar since Christmas. This is the first time he’s seen his 6-year-old son Landon in six months.
But you know what’s better than one surprise homecoming? Two surprise homecomings.
Woods also surprised his youngest son 2-year-old Caleb, who also goes to the Goddard School.
“At this age in 6 months they change so much,” Woods said. “This one was barely talking when I left and now he’s huge and everything.”
The boys wouldn’t let their dad go and little Landon already has big plans.
“Show him the tree house, play Minecraft and open presents,” said Landon.
