We're Home!


We are home! And at this moment I am sitting on the couch with my husband and my sweet girl watching Shrek. It is good to be home.

We are so tired. We got home from the airport at 2:00. My parents went and got pizza...sweet, sweet pizza for us! We talked for a little bit. Then put Ella down for a nap at 3:30 and wondered why were so exhausted. Oh yea, it's 11:30 P.M. Africa time and we've literally been traveling for the past 25 hours. So we laid down and we're out! The only reason I am even up at right now is because of Ella waking up, if not I would most definitely still be in the bed. But I am certainly not functioning very well.

Wanted to let y'all know that we are home and we are good! It was THE MOST AMAZING trip ever. But my brain can't think past getting up from this couch, so I promise to write all about it throughout the week. However, the Lord "kept us all strong to the end!" (1 Corinthians 1:8) And I am so thankful for that. Now it's time to rest.

Thank you again for all of your prayers and sweet comments. Most of which I was able to read while there, but the internet was usually to slow to post. Okay, I'm going to spend some more time with my sweet girl and direct all of my energy to keeping my eyelids open until Ella goes to bed.

Love,
