We all awoke around 6 in the morning, ate breakfast, drank coffee, talked for a bit and headed to the airport. My brother Gus and Cherine met us there and everyone walked us to the security entrance. It was bitter sweet. On one hand, I was really happy that we were going to move one and hang out with more people, but at the same time I was really sad to leave my family behind–knowing that it would be at least a year before we would see each other again. After saying our good-byes and shedding a few tears, we found ourselves once again waiting for a plane to take off. We entered the airport around 8:30 this morning and left the NC airport around 7:15 pm. The flights were about as pleasant as one would imagine, and we managed to get a little bit of sleep. Emily Bassett picked us up at the airport and gave us a lift from Charlotte to
Winston Salem where we will spend at least the next week with Alisa’s sister, Shelly, and the Hayes family. We were treated to home-made pizza–three different types as a matter a fact. I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to take any pictures. I guess I was just really tired. After many slices of pizza, we decided to go for a walk. It was a nice pleasant evening walk until it started raining–then it became a nice rainy evening walk. We walked in the cool rain for about half an hour and when we returned we were all soaked. I guess the weather right now is not very common for this time of the year. I have to admit, it’s nice to take a break from the sun just for a little bit.
