So, why did we move 2,000 miles away from our home in Knoxville, Tennessee? Michael accepted a position as the director of retail and international sales for a Caribbean clothing brand.

Day 17: Time to Say Goodbye

After a wonderful Christmas holiday in the Caribbean, it was time to bid farewell to my family.

We dropped them off at the airport on Wednesday morning.  Unfortunately, some of the volcanic activity on the nearby island of Montserrat caused their American Eagle flight to be cancelled. 

They were put on an 6-seater to Puerto Rico and my mom sat in the cockpit with the pilot!  {There's no photo of this because they put all of the carry on luggage in the back which meant my dad had no access to his camera.} 

While they eventually made it through San Juan and onto Miami, they all missed their connecting flights home.  American Eagle was able to get them on later flights though, so no one had to sleep in the airport.
