We said goodbye to the children this afternoon.
And got ourselves through security…
Can you see our friend Brother Anderson working in the background in the top left of the picture?
Then Mary had an upgrade on her recent social studies homework about how to use maps. I showed her our tickets, and what everything meant, and I showed her the board and how to read the graph.
Then it was her job to find our gate!
She did so great!
And there was a little restaurant that wasn’t super busy just across the way, so we were able to wait comfortably.
She got so excited when our plane arrived!
And then even more excited to find our seats on the plane!
She completely freaked out when the plane took off, shouting, “We are flying! We are flying!” It was so funny!
With two and a half hours to fly, though, she settled down soon enough.
We don’t go anywhere without art supplies, and so enjoyed the time drawing together.
I loved her drawing… we are big Hidden Figures fans, obviously.
We spotted all kinds of different types of clouds – best science ever!
And guess who we sat with on the plane?!
Some of our very most favorite people!
Which meant Mary had a new friend to play with for most of the flight!
We are so excited to be back in Salt Lake City!
