We made a trip back to the States to visit family and friends. Kate saw all sorts of interesting people… (this is just a sampling- too many more not listed here!)
She saw her grandmother:
She met her aunt Sam and cousin Molly, who tickled her:
She met her friend Cameron:
She met several friends who live in Kansas:
She and Jeremiah really hit it off:
Uncle Brad, aunt Megan, and cousin Emily were fun:
She met grandpa:
Her cousin Joseph played peek-a-boo with her:
She met aunt Lisa:
…and her cousin Ally:
She saw again her other grandma:
and her uncle Scott:
We spent a week on the beach with Sara’s family (and the Egan family):
She had fun with her Ahlgrim-side cousins:
and with Sara’s whole family:
and finally, she went swimming for the first time and thought it was hilarious.
It was an enjoyable trip, although the near-nonstop travel and visiting were exhausting!
We’re back home in Scotland, but leave for Paris in just a few short days. We have a fully-funded month in France courtesy of some obscure foundation, and I will be taking some French language classes. More details from France soon!
