I dropped Kate off at the Harrisburg Airport this morning for her flight to Fayetteville, NC. She is going to the Army Ball at Fort Bragg tomorrow night with a young man to whom she was introduced by our friend, Steve, who is in the Airborne Infantry. Steve and Alex are in the same unit and recently returned from Afghanistan. While there, Steve introduced Alex and Kate via Facebook and before long, Alex asked her to accompany him to the Ball. He even called Jim to ask his permission! Since we know and trust Steve, and he vouches not only for Alex's character, but also his Christian profession, we have sent Kate with our blessings.
Where else in America is a Jane Austin fan to go to attend a Ball?!?! This ought to be a wonderful week for Kate- we can't wait to hear all about it and see the pictures! I'll share some once she is home.
