Ah, the neglected blog…..sorry. Life is crazy, and chaotic and by the time I manage working full time, cooking, running to athletic events and just managing life, there has not been much time for blogging.
But there is cause for celebration! Five days from now we will be winging our way to Ethiopia – the WHOLE family!
We’ve been dreaming of doing this for years. We told Beza & Luke we would someday take them back. And the day is near at hand.
They will get a chance to visit extended family, including their grandmother. Noah and Natalie will have a chance to see where their siblings are from and experience the beautiful country that their father jets off to several times a year for work.
We’ve been saving and planning and waiting for a deal. And boy did we find one – on Emirates Airlines of all things – supposedly the best way to fly.
It includes a 22 hour layover in Dubai on the way there during which we have a “Bedouin Village” experience planned out in the desert before returning to a hotel, getting a good night sleep and continuing on to Addis.
We’ll have about 4 days in country. It’s not a long time but we will pack as much as we can into the time and then collapse when we return.
We’d appreciate your prayers. As one could imagine there are a lot of emotions and anxiety on the part of all the kids, each for their own reasons.
I’ll try to post while we’re gone, and certainly my Instagram feed will be busy as wireless can be found 🙂
