It was a happy day for one six-year-old.
After serving in Iraq for nine months, Lucas Cummings surprised his daughter, Tatum at school Tuesday afternoon.
“Knock, knock,” Cummings said in the doorway of Stacy Smiley’s Southside Elementary kindergarten classroom.
Up from her chair, Tatum jumped in her father’s arms.
“I know how to tie my shoes now,” Tatum told her dad, who had been away for a year with D. Com. 250 BSB.
“It’s great to be back,” said Lucas.
