However, I also think that it is an incredibly small world and here are three very good reasons.
1) Tuesday, June 19 - Thomas Jefferson University Hospital
I was observing Orthopedic Surgeon Jay Parvizi. We were chatting in the lounge and he mentioned that he spent time at Mayo in Rochester, MN. I asked him if he knew Andy Sems - yes he did.
2) Sunday, June 24 - The Vile's house
I was speaking with George, Kevin's father after Amy's surprise shower. I mentioned how I made a customer visit to HUP (Hospital of University of PA) to meet the new people taking over a project after the young physician had tragically died in his sleep a few weeks ago. Apparently, the daughter of friends of theirs was his wife!
3) Monday, June 25 - Email
I got a follow up email from HUP regarding our project and Abe Voorhees is the scientist from Siemens who will be working with me on this project! We spent two years at Grove City in the engineering program. He transferred to another school and apparently not only finished in engineering but also went on for his PhD. His wife also had their first baby last week Monday otherwise I might have seen him in person while I was in Philly!

Janice is a great hostess even 2 weeks from her due date! I loved her new condo and we had a nice walk around the neighborhood of Jamaica Plain.
Such a cute belly! I think she has a basketball in her shirt like Jill!
You know these Grove City College friends are keepers for sure! So wonderful even when we haven't seen each other for a long time. Honestly, seeing Janice really was a huge blessing. I had been traveling for work for 2 weeks and was SOOO READY to be home and for a home cooked meal so Janice did a wonderful job sustaining me for the time being.

So yes with all the excitement and fun from the shower we forgot to take a picture of us all dressed up. Here we both are Monday morning for our early flights. No shower or makeup - just us.

This is me in front of Independence Hall - I think this is where the Declaration of Independence was signed.
This is a fuzzy picture of the Liberty Bell. I took it through the window from quite far away. But if you don't get cross-eyed looking at it then you might see me in the lower right hand corner!
And here is Benjamin Franklin's Grave. Interesting.
Okay, so now I feel quite historically fulfilled for the day and get to go to bed. Phew.

Me, Anna, and Emmett are in front of Owen's Garden. This was planted in rememberence of their older brother and it is a beautiful addition to Beverly Park which is just down the road from their house.

Sarah and Linnea. We talked until 11 and then I drove home for 2 hours. I just didn't want to leave - it was so great to see her and catch up.

Katie took her nap in my bed and tucked in her stuffed animals right next to her. She read an entire pile of books too.
