Well, we made it through the flying just fine. The kids were a lot less freaked out than I expected, thank goodness!
Unfortunately, the flight left the airport at 4:40 in the morning, and although I set the alarm for 2:00 a.m., it didn't go off. We woke up at 3:00 and despite that we managed to shower, pack the car, and drive 20 miles and still get at the airport a half hour early. I don't know how we did it...must have been some kind of magic.
We're in Oregon where it has been pouring rain, windy, gray, and dismal. I miss the snow and sunshine in North Dakota!
Anyway, that's the latest. Several more days, then back on a plane and back home.
Talk to y'all later!
