Goodbye Mooses (or, tons of pictures)

Jonah, Jessica, Makaylah and Zoe Moos left this morning. Or they meant to. They left the house at 3:45am, and then their flight was delayed (after they boarded) so they have now spent 8 hours in the Portland airport. I'm sorry I missed out on one last morning with them, but I got some sleep. I already miss them though. Makaylah has made me promise that I will come to visit her at her house in Cairo (don't think she remembers the first time I went there), so I'll have to do that...

Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures from their visit (not in order), of them and me and various other friends and family who you should recognize...

Pete, Lily, Happie and me.

Jessica, Makaylah, Melina, Jonah, Zoe, me and Jack.

Mk and Melina. These two hit it off swimmingly. Such a bummer they can't hang out all the time. But we always have Skype....

    What fantastic pictures!!! So glad to see that gorgeous one of you and Josie, and you're right, that is a great face on Zoe! Great picture of Tracy, too. You should be a professional photographer!

    What special memories you've made this summer!

    great pictures, Jess.

    This week went by so fast! I'm sad that I didn't get to say goodbye to Jonah, Jessica, etc....

    And ditto Carrie - you SHOULD be a professional photographer!
