For the first time in over two years, we had all three of our adult children at home last week. Our middle daughter finished her 25 month commitment as a Peace Corps Volunteer and arrived Thursday evening in time to spend two full days with her younger sister who was home on spring break from her school in Texas. All three siblings enjoyed a night out together Saturday leaving mom and dad home to watch something on the DVR…I don’t remember what it was. Then early Sunday morning, and I do mean early, as in 4:00AM, we made the 35 minute trek to LAX to put our soccer princess back on the plane to Texas. My wife, Valerie, booked our youngest daughter’s flight and is always careful to get the most economical fare. We saved something like $200 by having her leave at 6:15AM instead of later in the day. Moreover, some airlines charge up to $50 more for checking your bags instead of using carry-on luggage, which brings me to the point of this blog.
