This was such a fun trip. I got to do all the things I wanted to do: spend time with my sister and her family, both together and individually, eat at my favorite restaurants, see a Huskers game, and visit with lots of good family and friends.
Chris' family came over on a couple of different occasions. They are such wonderful people and it was fun to see them. I met Cherisa's co-workers, another group of great people.
I went to church and saw some of the old-timers. Most of my friends have moved on, but it was great to see those who are still there.
I also caught up with one of Cherisa's best friends who I haven't seen since high school. It's so fun to see the paths people choose. She is a nurse but is going back to get a master's while still working, so we talked about the joys of going to school and the challenges of doing so while working.
The first day I was there was kind of a laid-back day. I knew I would be pretty tired b/c I had to get up so early to catch my flight. Cherisa, M and P and I went for a walk/bike ride. The kids favorite part is climbing over this tree that fell down over the stream earlier this year.
