We loaded up with Krista's books and clothes....we had 8 suitcases coming home. When I went to check in, I was offered the opportunity to check 3 carry-ons....so....we found and filled carry-ons too.
On the drive to RDU we planned the drive for Michael to meet Krista at the end of her assignment. They'll swing by Oregon and bring our mom's things up. It's nice to have a plan.
It was a relief to have the bags checked in at Raleigh-Durham and to be on our way.
Poor Michael was TIRED. I began to wonder if I'd get him on the plane. ::snort::
Not to fear - we all arrived back in Anchorage. Alex did a great job figuring out how to FIT all the extra bags into our van. We were happy it was parked and waiting for us at the airport.
As the day came to an end, we left the airport and headed back to our home in the valley.
