Jim, Karen and I arrived at Dulles International Airport at 7 pm. This was well before the 8:05 pm arrival of our grandson Jamie's Jet Blue flight from Oakland, CA. His first"unaccompanied" flight. His first solo visit to Washington.
Karen brought the latest Harry Potter to pass the time. I was practicing stories for a "story telling" tomorrow. Jim checked the map - for the most likely place to meet him.
Karen looked up from her book.
"Do you remember the first time Robin brought him out? He was so little."
Indeed I did. We had formed such a welcoming committee then too - to greet Robin and baby Jamie. Now we waited for 13 year old Jamie - on his own. There hardly seemed time for that one to grow into this one.
