My dad left to go on his hike today! He is hiking the southern half of the Pacific Crest Trail this summer. I am really excited for him and hope that he is safe and has a great experience. Goodness knows that if he can endure a year of everyone teasing him about this hike, a few weeks in the wilderness should be no biggie! Mom and Jake took dad to the airport today but first they picked me up and we all got to go to lunch at Texadelphia. Sitting there and knowing that I won’t see dad again for a long time and then hugging him when I got back to work made this whole move to London thing really real. If today is any indication, there are lots and lots of tears in my future.
Dad, whenever you hike into a town and read this- we are all praying for you and can’t wait to see you again. Love you!!!
