St*rbucks for the parents and coloring for the kids- overlooking the ocean- works for me!
Doing a little dancing before dinner!
On Saturday we went on a plane ride to Florida. The plane was too heavy so we needed more gas to get here! I am pretty sure it was because of my suitcases! I am the worst packer in the world. I see know reason to trouble myself with decisions- I just put it all in! I'm blaming the extra weight on those wild olive tees of mine! Ya know, they are awfully heavy ;-) Oh my when we went to China I thought our guide was going to fall over when she saw our suitcases. I really don't know how some people do it. Even when people say they pack light I see them in different outfits, different shoes, different earings- I don't believe those light packer- they have to have an extra suitcase stashed somewhere!
The girls did great on the plane and they are doing great here! They will be 4 and 10 by the time we travel to China (they are just growing up to fast)! Sarah and Anna would be a wonderful diversion to Emma and Ellie who will be heartbroken to leave their foster family. Thank you for your comments on "who should travel"! I am thinking about going coach and bringing the crew! We will see what our situation is when the dear Lord has us traveling to China!
I have not had internet connection for the last 3 days. I did okay at first just enjoying the family and a change of scenery BUT then I wanted to get back on and see how everybody was doing, maybe blog a little and get a few other things done. That's when I realized- NO INTERNET- when ya want it and ya can't have it- it can drive ya crazy! So today we worked on getting it all figured out- and here I am so ya'll know how it turned out! (I'm not even from the south, I'm a northerner but I still do like an occasional ya'll)!
Hurricane Ida is making it's way to Florida. It will not be hitting land near us but we will feel some of it. The wind has really picked up and the next few days should be rainy. We took a walk along the point, the wind carry the stroller down the path- we didn't even have to push it! We are hoping to get some nicer days in during the end of our time here! Thank you Jesus!
I can hardly wait to check out all your blogs! I've missed you!
