I dropped off Connor at summer school this morning, and then picked up Mary. We stopped at Bagel Tree for a breakfast-to-go, and headed up to Portland.
We were on the freeway still, when we saw the Lufthansa jet cross the sky just in front of us at 11:30. I'm all, "I think that was her plane!"
Mary & I watched a few more planes come in from the top of the parking structure, and then headed down to the baggage claim area of Portland International Airport.
We met up with other parents waiting on their kiddos, and about an hour later, Diana walked through the passage from customs. Whoo hooo!
Mary had made a special sign, so Diana would know she was home :P
We stopped at Subway for a quick lunch (no Salmon!!) and then headed the rest of the way home.
Diana unpacked all her stuff and showed us her photos (500+) and then we went to China Palace for dinner.
She made it through half an episode of Doctor Who before she started conking out. We put her in the shower for a quick wash-down, while we tidied up her bed for her. She's been up for 27 hours - with occasional snoozing on the planes. If she can, we told her to try to sleep until 5:00 or 6:00 am.
We're glad our (not so) little girl is home safe again with us, and Thank You so much to Martina, Juergen & Leonie for giving her such a wonderful visit!!
