Paine Field is a mixed blessing | Guest View

My family and I use Paine Field Airport.
My oldest daughter, Anna, is a sophomore studying at Chapman University in California. My other daughter, Sophie, will be attending the Colorado School of Mines this fall, near Denver, even further from us. This separation has been made easier with the convenience of having an airport just 10 minutes away from our house. If we timed it, I think it would be three and a half hours from Anna's door in Orange County to ours here in Mukilteo. Once, she left her phone on the plane and we had to call the airport to try to get it back.
