We woke up in a bit of a rush this morning, due to the fact that we thought we had two more hours before needing to check out than we actually did. We scrambled to clean up camp and then we were off. The drive seemed shorter on the way back and we unpacked the cars fairly quickly. In the evening we had plans to Skype with all of my sisters and my parents so that we could all be present for Aubrey and Jordan opening the book (Finally, right? The book actually came on my birthday, but this was the day we could all be around for the event). Well, when I say that "we could all be present", I mean nothing went right, preventing us from all being present. We met at my parents' house and they were nowhere to be seen. We tried hopping online to create a chat, but their internet proved to prevent that from happening. Finally, after what seemed like too long to bare, we got on Jordan's iPad and the month-overdue gift was given. Aubrey and Jordan had to immediately rush off and my sisters needed to get back to their evenings too, but I think it was received well. Shortly afterward, my parents arrived and we gave them the copy we had printed for them. I can't wait for everyone to finish thumbing through it and finding all of the little details of care and wittiness we tucked nicely in a 7x7 365-page thick novel.
