Big Trip


I just dropped off my parents and my five-year-old at the airport. They’re spending ten days in a thatched cottage in the English countryside. It’s Lily’s first plane trip, first time outside the country—first time outside the VA-NC-SC tristate region!

Here she is, just after she carefully signed her passport and just before she got into a hot shower to prepare (and to wash off her very American face paint: shamrock on one cheek, basketball on the other).
