So summer travel can be a bit dicey.
Storms roll through
and the you get stuck
or your plane doesn't arrive.
This week the Schumacher family
were stranded in Boston
because the FFA Center in Leesburg, VA
had to evacuate because of noxious fumes.
So no flights into DC, BWI or National.
The hotels near the Boston airport
shot up to $500 a night.
Then a helpful attendant called them up
and said, "I can get you to BWI
for the night does that help?"
A quick call to a
very accommodating sister Sara,
got them a ride from BWI to Springfield.
So at 1:30 am they rolled in from a long day.
At 7 am Griffin announced to Gigi
that it was time for "brekstet."
By 8 am we will playing croquet in the back yard
and at the water station by 9 am.
So we played fast, talked fast and by 1 pm
they were on their way back to BWI and home.
But you just have to love it
little urchins (and their caregivers)
arrive in the
middle of the night
and bless your day.
