For a graduation present, we thought it would be good to throw Emma out of an airplane a couple of miles above the earth! Cynics among you may view this as a way to avoid paying for college, but the guide she tandemed with is a colleague of Linda’s, so we knew he would treat his precious cargo appropriately.
Getting ready. A purple jump suit is perfect!
The moment of truth!
Head first out of the plane. I wonder if it feels like birth is like?
Upside down, looking up for a while.
Freefall with the storms moved off to the east.
I can fly! Flap harder!
Getting closer you can see all the ponding in the farm fields.
Back to terra firma, almost.
Back to the soggy ground at the Boone airport.
