Umm… Tomorrow we get on a plane...Woohoo!
We just heard that we are confirmed for our Embassy appointment! Thanks for praying us through!
We had a great weekend, full of preparation and lots of “hey, we should do this, because after the girls come…” moments. ;)
Because I have much to write about, I will do it in sections, then you can read the ones that sound fun to you. Just like a good "Choose Your Own Adventure" book.
This gets it own section because, whew!, it has been…strategic. I have never packed so light for myself and then still had so much luggage! We are taking donations over, clothes, shoes, formula, baby Tylenol, a computer (+ monitor), etc. Jon and I are packing in the same suitcase and we need our clothes, video camera, camera, any food we want, toiletries, toys for the care center and…my blowdryer. I know, totally should leave it…I might. We are going to use that 50 lb limit on every bag! Not going to waste it! :)
We borrowed the giant camouflage duffels in the hope that customs officials won’t even see them. :) They are amazing and HUGE!
Africa=Hot, right? Our agency instructed us that women should always cover knees and shoulders and in most situations elbows too…I was flipping out, but apparently I was wrong, Ethiopia is not that hot. It looks like an average day, temps are in the 70’s.
Blogging While We Are Gone
My dear sister, Kristen, “Miss Kris” if you want to be her forever friend, has graciously agreed to blog for us. I don’t think I can get on blogger from Ethiopia, so I will e-mail her and she will pass important info along (and any other fun tidbits she has to offer).
(I am seriously cracking myself up, imagining you all going up to her and seeing her reaction to you calling her Miss Kris)...
It is amazing how much and how big baby stuff is! We have installed the carseats, assembled the high chairs, swing, etc. The nursery is ready, just waiting for babies!
Sunday School Spring Party
I am so going to miss SS. We had a Spring Party yesterday and here are a few pics...
