First, I’ll show you the pictures I took at Newark Airport as Gavin and his cousin prepared for their first ‘parent-less’ flight.
Second, I’ll tell you that through a series of actions by several United Airlines employees that were unprofessional, disorganized, and misinformed, our kids missed their crack-of-dawn flight. It was really unfortunate and super inconvenient. Super.
It was a really looooong day that ended in the late afternoon with happy teens boarding a plane bound for sunny Florida.
As my sister recounted our woes on Facebook, a friend of her’s simply stated:
‘God’s purposes, no?’
Yes. I can embrace that. A reason for everything.
