Isaac and Irene arrived at Sea-Tac airport about 3:30 this afternoon. They were so excited to tell me all about their trip. They saw downtown Denver and downtown Seattle - the Space Needle, the stadiums, even the end-of-runway guides that they have driven under on many occasions. Somehow this trip was just so special to them, on their own without parents. Irene declared it "the best trip ever".
Of course, all of us adults are happy that it went so well. and that the airline took good care of them.
I had been getting some text updates from the U-Haul truckers, Jill and Tom, so I knew when they crossed into Washington State, when they were at Snoqualmie Pass, and on the Lake Washington floating bridge. I knew they would make it home for dinner.
Sure enough about 5:15 they were at the door, and this was parked out at the street.
After dinner Jill and Tom got the car trailer parked next door (Thanks, Maxine), the car in the driveway, and the truck backed in too. We unloaded some of the food stuff that had been stuffed at the back of the truck, (remember, the packing was done in two days) and got the electronics out of the car.
Now the kids are in bed, Jill is getting her room set up, and Tom and I are back to doing what we do, for now anyway.
Big changes took place today. It will take a while for it all to settle. For now, so far, so good.
