We left out bright and early Sunday morning to drive to Austin, TX. We were able to add in an unexpected stop in Commerce - to meet a family we'll be serving alongside once we're in Madagascar. We're looking forward to seeing them again once we're in Mada (they'll be arriving for language school in October)! Here's a picture of all the girls with Ryleigh - looks like she'll have lots of "girl time" even in Mada!
15 hours later we arrived in Austin. It was a long drive but well worth it to spend some time with Aunt Maria and Uncle Skip! Of course it was also good to finally put Ryleigh's "cowgirl" outfit to appropriate use! :)
The weather was GORGEOUS and we took full advantage of it!
Oh...and Aunt Maria made sure that Ryleigh understood she has to be a Longhorn fan ;)
