But hey, I finally had some time and decided to give you the long expected post.
Saturday morning...October 17th...
Our family cleaned our home, cleaned Dad's study/the guest room, cleaned the bathrooms EXTRA well, and got food prepared for the next morning.
Emily McConnell was on her way to visit us!
|Emily and I |
right before our "Good bye".
It was SO fun to finally meet her face-to-face and get to really know her! I mean, actually talking to a PERSON, not just e-mailing a girl you've seen pictures of is completely different! And MUCH better in my opinion! She was able to show me her Mornelly siblings in better detail and I was able to show her some of my characters for a future book...you all will hear more on THAT later... Also she brought some fascinating WWII espionage books that are now on hold at our library for me to read! ;)
I know I'm making you all jealous now. *sheepish grin*
Sunday morning she was able to go to our church! I dragged her around and introduced her to all my friends (except one who was down in California at the time...and very disappointed that she would miss meeting Emily) and then took her on a tour of our house and woods, as well as some various neighbors. And yes, she got jam from the Kernans. (Inside joke to those of you who have met the Kernans. Jesseca will understand...her family also got some jam from them. ;P)
Ironically, we were having such a great time talking and showing each other characters and books that we only took one picture together. And that was right before she left!
Sorry to you guys... :(
I really meant to take more.
Anyways, we had a fantastic time!
Emily will probably tell you her perspective soonish, so I won't spoil everything by giving you ALL the details. ;)
God bless you Emily! It was so cool to meet you! (And your brother and sister. B-)
