Par for the course this year the plane scheduled to wing our Vanderbilt cohort back to the Bay Area was delayed nearly an hour. Fortunately, though, this was a direct flight so there were fewer opportunities for further delays.
The good pilot had a lead foot and pushed his airplane to go even faster than anticipated so the plane arrived earlier than expected--always a good thing.
Coming from the Oakland International Airport, the shuttle should have inched through the Friday night commute traffic but actually arrived earlier than expected.
When they arrived, most of the parents were there waiting but even those who came after the shuttle arrived in a matter of minutes.
It’s always fun to watch these joyous homecomings.
After the photos were snapped--we can’t have an ILC event without photos--the cars were packed and the Vanderbilt cohort went their separate ways--back to the beds they know and the home cooking they’ve grown up with.
The coming home event wouldn't be complete, though, with out a group hug of the four Vandies who have spent so much time together over the past month.
