Our Richmond Send-Off, and Scotland Welcome

Now that we have internet, I can share some photos with you! But, I have some catching up to do, so we'll have to start with the day we left, three weeks ago today.

I think I've stepped into some alternate universe where time passes at a slower rate, and feels 50 bajillion times longer than usual. It's hard to believe we've only been here three weeks. It feels like at least 3 months. But each week passes a little bit faster, so I think time will get back to normal soon.

Here are some of the people that came to bid us farewell at the airport, it was a great time.

This is my parents, my nephew, my dad's dad and his lovely wife Rose. I'm sad we didn't get a Murphy family photo!

I have very fond memories of that day. It could have been a disaster, but all was well. I remember being in line at the security checkpoint and looking back every chance I got to wave to my family and make sure I could get one last look, again and again.

And here's the first photo I took in Scotland. It's hard to tell exactly what it is, but that's James on the left and the window in the background says "Welcome To Scotland." I would've tried for a better shot, but we were more concerned with gathering our luggage and leaving the airport.
