We made it! We're here...beautiful Asheville, NC!!!
The flight went so much better than I anticipated...so many people willing to help out a mom by herself with two kids (and way too much stuff for one person to carry!) You just have to appreciate the man who offers to carry a car seat to your seat and then latches it in securely. And the person who makes sure Hadleigh doesn't run back into the airport because the noise of the airplane at the entrance scares her, all the while, I am trying to collapse our stroller to check gateside and keep Nathanael from falling over.
So thankful for our helpful flight attendant...and for Mom waiting there for us...she was the light at the end of the tunnel for me!
It is so good to be "home" ... I"m just soaking in the mountains, the trees, the green, the smells of this place that I love so very much. We went for a walk tonight and Hadleigh caught her first lightning bug!
Fun to watch the kiddos interact with aunts and uncles and grandparents...excited about our visit...will post pictures later!
