Day 137 Two little birdies flew away...

That's right, Justin and Keturah went to Indiana with Grandma Leah today.  It was a tear-filled morning for many reasons.  Not only will we not see them for a month, but they will probably not come back to the Island for a very, very long time, if ever.  It is expensive to get here and it's out of the way from other places where our family lives, so it's unlikely that we'd come back any time soon.  But, everyone is welcome to visit us in Indianapolis or wherever we permanently land!  We also love visitors!

Abishai and Benaiah got some one on one time with Mommy and Daddy today while we ran some errands this afternoon.  I got a little bit of rearranging done and some purging of kitchen cupboards, but I knew it wasn't going to be a hugely productive today.  Tomorrow I hope to plunge in to some more major packing in the boys' room while finishing up the odds and ends in Keturah/Abishai's room.

The kids and Grandma did land safely in Indy a little bit ago.  Grandma said they were well behaved, ate well, felt well, but were a little giggly because it's a bit late in the day.  Grandpa even had flowers for Keturah and a mini Lego set for Justin!  Sweet!

Last time on her PEI bed.

Saying good bye to his puppy

Aw, sad faces.

We couldn't convince Benaiah to join them for a picture.

Sad faces for some.  Again, Benaiah was too busy with his gaming to come with us.

I love to take pictures on flight aware websites like this one as they flew over Maine on their way to Toronto!  It's all shown in real time!

Landing in Toronto.

Then they flew to Chicago before landing in Indianapolis.  This shows the curve the plane took in the air.  I think the zig zag pattern is from a previous flight with the same number or something.
