I'm currently sitting in the airport terminal at Kansas City International awaiting my Alaska Airlines flight to Portland - a nonstop flight! I didn't realize that it was possible to book a nonstop flight anywhere, much less halfway across the United States. That will really be a treat!
I guess they call airport gathering points "terminals" because they are where flights end - but referring to a place where flights originate as a "terminal" sounds a bit ominous.
This trip to Kansas City has been very brief, but I did get to spend a bit quality time with my grandchildren, Olive and Sullivan. Olive is preparing for her final year of pre-school, and Sullivan, who is just two-and-a-half months old is beginning to smile and chatter. Sullivan's mother, Erin, has printed out the blog post that I wrote to him on the day he was born, enlarged it slightly, and has it framed on his bedroom wall. I am very proud of that!
This evening I will get to see my Oregon grandchildren - Sebastian, Judah, and Willow. I got them tee shirts here at the airport which they can wear to school - and a Hot Wheels car for each. They all like cars! Hopefully we can get in some serious toy-shopping while I am there!
