From the South to the South

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.

Our cat’s sister
Some of us had some dessert and we all sat around chatting and petting the Hayes’ cat, Stella. Stella is   Turtle’s sister. Alisa and Shelly got Turtle and Stella from the same place about five years ago before Shelly and family moved out to North Carolina. It’s really funny to see her because she has the exact same markings as Turtle but she’s smaller and grey.
