1. I got no sleep last night. As evidenced in the gallon jugs hanging on under my eyeballs today. Sean called at 5:50 to tell me he made it to Baltimore and, "Why do you sound so tired? Were you sleeping?" Um, YAW.
4. Susannah, Tara, Paul, Isabella, Jacob, Caleb, Ashlee, Mazzy, Byron, Sara, Vick, Lhanna, and little Lennon, I appreciate every single one of you. It means the world to me that you care enough about our little unit to be there today. Taking pictures, (wo)manning the video camera, corralling kids...I couldn't have kept it together without you guys. Thank you, thank you, a million times thank you.
While I'm at it, I also really appreciate the tons and tons of emails and facebook messages I got not just today, but all along. Those little bits of pep talks and encouragement meant more than any of you will ever know.
6. It was a really wierd feeling seeing Sean at the top of that ramp. Just surreal is all, I guess. I don't know how to put it into words. I felt all shy and...wierd. I still haven't stopped shaking all the way.
