The kids and I are currently sitting in the Halifax airport (yes, back here again!), this time to fly to my parents in Iowa. I haven’t been back to my hometown in two years, and I’m excited to be there again. Sydney, meanwhile, is going to be wandering the same airport in Halifax later today for his flight back to England for his immigration interview. I’m looking forward to greeting him in Kentucky at the end of next week–though first I need to get my head back into the paper I’m giving in Mississippi on Monday!
In very good news, Nelson and Kira were married this past Sunday, and all went reasonably smoothly. It was a hot, hot day, but everyone pitched in to participate in the ceremony and reception. Some Silly Putty also bought us a peaceful evening feast with the bridal party after the nerve-wracking parts were over. Nelson and Kira drove us to the airport today, and I got to give my brother-in-law and new sister-in-law big hugs before we headed out.
