We headed to Lawrence Thursday afternoon and met up with Nate's sister, Caitlin and her fiance, Andy. Nate spoke at the KU Navigators and we caught up with friends and grabbed dinner around 10:30 p.m. Some sleep and a 7:30 a.m. departure for Burlington.
Today was packed. My mom had biscuits and gravy waiting for us when we pulled into town, then we showed Nate around Burlington. We stopped at the high school and ran into Mrs. Parker, my junior and senior year English teacher. I also surprised Coach Stewart, the girls basketball coach. We drove around a bit more to see the elementary school and check out the newspaper office where my mom works before heading to lunch at Dad and Karen's. My grandparents came up to visit and meet Nate. Dad took Nate and I out behind the pond through some trails in the woods. It was sunny and beautiful except for the wind.
