The morning started with Hannah's request of pumpkin waffles with buttermilk syrup. Her younger sister, Katie, stayed home from school for most of the morning to squeeze out a last few minutes with Hannah. William, her younger brother, didn't have to leave for work until later that afternoon and was also able to spend time with her. Last minute things were done, the car loaded, and off we went. William stood by the garage door, eyes tearing up, watching us drive off. He will miss her greatly. One last Turkey Chipotlle Panini and a Strawberry Italian Soda from one of her favorite lunch places-- Barnes & Noble and then MTC, here we come!
