I have no idea what 'T minus," means, but it sounds good when the NASA people say it!
We leave in 19 hours for our long-awaited trip to China to get Zoey and Kate. In the past few days we have been packing, finalizing tickets and schedules and battling the stomach flu. Not fun. We hope we have seen the last of the stomach bug.
We have been so humbled and blessed by three families who have stepped forward to watch our kids while we are gone. It is inconvienent and a sacrifice for them and we are so grateful for their offers to help. One of the families has a young daughter having surgery today and still insisted on having SaraGrace stay with them. Please pray for these families (that they will stay sane!!) and for good health for everyone.
And...ahem...'Baby" the bunny is actually a dog! At least, Jeff thinks so, and the more I look at Baby, the more I agree. Originally, I just glanced at the long, floppy ears and thought, 'bunny.'
We are all a jumble of emotions...fear, excitement, anticipation. The kids are doing well so far, although I am not looking forward to our good-bye's tonight. We leave for the airport at 5AM Wed., so when the kids wake up, we will be gone. (For those of you who get this blog via email, we will probably be gone by the time you get it.) For those of you who are praying....THANK YOU!!! We appreciate it so much. Feel free to email us when we are gone - or post comments on the blog. We LOVE hearing from home!
