Day 22 -- Flying Home

Tuesday, June 8th:

We woke up at 5:30 this morning to quickly get ready to head to the airport. After our sad goodbyes, we were dropped off. Jen flew out at 7:30 and we finally boarded at 10:15 am. This was Miriam's first time flying and she has now discovered that she loves the experience.

We had a brief layover in Denver, CO (another new state for Miriam!), and then flew into Atlanta, GA, where Miriam's mom picked us up. We drove to their house, then Anna's mom picked her up to bring her home.

It's been an amazing trip together; we've made lasting memories during this once-in-a-lifetime experience. It's gone quickly (where did 3 weeks go?), but it's good to be home again, much as we miss our friends. Life is starting to get back to normal (whatever that is!), and it's time to prepare for upcoming summer opportunities in Alabama!

I am sooooooo glad you enjoyed your trip. And Miriam, flying is amazing, isn't? I flew the first time when I was 19 and have been flying several times a year since. :)

I'm a bit jealous of your trip. I've been to about 40 states now. Of the states I have left to see, you went to about six of them, so you've now seen the area of the US I have yet to see.

I enjoyed catching up on your blog today, while being "on hold" to order some camp Bibles.
It was very encouraging to read what has been on your mind and heart these past several weeks. It was also fun to reminice about our trip and travels and see what happened "on the home front" during gradutation and things (The month of May really flew by). Hope you are having a great day!
