The End of Summer

Well, I'm in Idaho. I left Alaska four days early because my grandmother died (not the one that died in April, my other grandmother) and I was fortunate enough to get to be here when my sister had her baby! She and her husband have a beautiful little baby girl named Kaitlyn. She's just adoreable! Although I'm very homesick for Alaska, I'm really glad I got to be here for my sister. Now Taylor Jo has a baby sister and she's really excited and we're excited for her. I brought my camera to the hospital earlier but I forgot it when I made my second trip here and Sara and Kaitlyn were actually awake and I could have gotten pictures. Todd has taken a bunch, though, so I'm sure he'll be happy to show off his newest baby girl.

I fly back tomorrow to DC. I'm not excited at all. I have been so happy in Alaska and at home and the thought of getting on the plane tomorrow is just depressing. :(

I'll post pictures of Kaitlyn as soon as I get some from Todd.

Alaska is beautiful! I can see why it was so hard to leave. I'm reading books that have the setting in Virginia though. It sounds beautiful too, although, they don't take place in D.C. :) I miss you. I hope to see you soon. Amy says hi. She made a comment on the same place that you did on my blog. She wrote, "Hi Rachel, if you're reading this."
