Abel's Departure

The three host families that had Abel in their homes gather for his "party of the goodbyes". Here seated are Martha Deutch, her husband and family, Glenda Melton, her daughter and family, and Dawn and our munchkin.
The Last Supper ... Abel couldn't leave the country without another hamburger for the road. It was a double patty double cheese! (1,000,000 calories)
Security was tight at Portland Airport. I've been to the airport so much this summer that I am thinking of writing my name on a reserved parking spot. The security guard checked the papers carefully and sent Abel through the metal detectors. On the other side he stopped for a moment caught our eye and gave us a big wave bye. He's a good young man and I hope we see him again.
