Indiana/Florida trip, part 10 (!)

We had a great first day of school today. I'll tell you about that later, though. For now, here are the last photos from my trip to America. Then I think I have one more post of what I noticed there this time, and then I'm done with recording that wonderful time.

My childhood best friend kindly had her baby while I was in Florida. I know that she planned that just for me.  Mom and I visited them in the hospital.

I was horrified that all the bouquets in the store had FOUR blooms. (Honestly, I'm not superstitious, but that's just ugly.) So, I had to separate the flowers that I bought for my friend out into one for baby and three for mama, in cups that I labeled:

I think Mom was amused.

Then we went back to the house for...

Cousin Skype
The picture is of Aliana's turn, but I was the one who got the real massage. My sister is studying to be a massage therapist. She brought her table over and gave me an amazing treat. So, so nice before setting out on another trans-Atlantic trip!

Snuggle time
Dinner with friends
That night we had a great time of fellowship with beloved friends. I got to share my photos and stories with them, and they prayed over me at the end.

I left early the next morning. Again, the travel was really easy, all by myself. Although the way back seemed much longer. I was very glad to finally be back at home with my family. Now I have so many wonderful memories from my trip. Thank you to everyone who was a part of it! Should I say thank you to AO for sponsoring it, too?
