A Trip to Kirksville Missouri

Up until this past June I had never heard of Kirksville, Missouri.     All of that changed when my daughter told me she had accepted a job at Truman State University located in that very place. They moved to their new townhome on August 11th and I arrived with my sister on August 16th to help her settle into her new surroundings and help out with her 1 year old daughter Sofia, my only grandchild. She started her job the day before we arrived and her husband had to leave for a trip out of the country the day after we arrived.  In the following days I will try to describe the adventures I experienced during our two week stay in Kirksville, Missouri and surrounding counties. 

But first a little about our flight to Kirksville.  We flew from Orange County airport to St. Louis. From St. Louis we had to take a small plane (8 passenger seats) on "Cape Air" to Kirksville. Fortunately it was a clear day, no wind and the ride was pleasant with a great view of the surrounding farmlands, corn fields and pleasant rural areas. We landed within the hour in the tiniest airport located in the midst of cornfields.
  Our tiny 8 passenger plane arrives safely.

 Our two week adventure begins.
Aria, Daniele and Sofia pick us up a little after we land and we are off on a short 10 minute ride from the airport to downtown Kirksville.

 Finally arriving at the kids new townhome.

Time to settle in, unpack and play with Sofia. We have arrived!
