MK - don't get too used to it!

Each year MK goes to New Orleans to visit the Big Man's family and to attend VBS at their church. This is actually her last year to go to VBS as a "kid" but hopes to be a helper in the next years, especially when T. Willy can go. This year we were debating how to get her there. It's a 3 1/2 hour drive, not a big deal, but everyone had things going on so we were trying to figure things out. It turns out that my in-laws have some friends who own a beach home in our area and were there and returning to the N.O. area on Sunday on a private plane. It worked out that they were able to take MK with them! I think I was more excited than she was. I was so excited that she was willing to try this adventure. It wasn't her first flight, but it was the first time she had flown without me. Fortunately, she knows the family and they have a son near her age. So here are a few pictures of her big adventure. I just hope that flying coach isn't going to be too hard for her after that! We appreciate the family and their willingness to let her join them. The Big Man has some days off at the end of the week so we'll all drive over to get her.

Please don't forget the Gulf Coast in your prayers! Things are NOT normal and won't be for a long, long time. Take a look at my sidebar at the FBC site if you get a chance. It's my in-law's church and there are pictures of some of the work the teams have been doing.

Have a great day!!!

MK is living it up, I see! Woohoo!

My brother is the pilot for a locally-based convenient store chain. Unfortunately, I still have to drive everywhere or fly coach. (Mostly drive because Caveman doesn't like to fly.)

Oh, now that is a neat experience. Hard to believe they get to the "camp helper" age so darned quickly, isn't it?

Thanks for finding us. I'm sure it wasn't easy. Trip here was great. We stopped in Colorado Springs and saw Jeff and Kellie Browning. We found a great home and then in January I slipped on the ice and broke my right arm in 8 places. Had to have surgery in April. Just got my cast off the end of May. Your kids are growing so fast. MK going to love middle school. Both of mine did..Glad to hear from you. How's my house? Are they taking care of it? We miss Florida very much but we are enjoying the snow.
