Catch up blog from November 4, 2008
Election day was exciting for more than just electing our first black president - it was also the day my sister, Katelyn got home from her Outward Bound Leadership Course.
Her course had actually finished up the day before, and she had driven up to stay at my mom's house late on Monday night.
Tuesday morning she got up early to cast her vote in McLean before stopping by our house to visit with the kids and witness Peter's "new" skill - walking (she left a few weeks after he started).
It was great to see her, and Peter couldn't get enough of hugging her and sitting on her lap. He was also fascinated by her boyfriend Rich's newly grown out beard!
After about an hour, Katelyn and Rich had to go so that they could make it to State College, PA where Rich cast his vote.
We were so excited to have Katelyn back from the wilderness and look forward to spending more time with her in the coming weeks. To learn more about Katelyn's trip check out her blog.
