Where Would You Like To Go?

September 12, 2014

We're HERE!

I guess more accurately it would be "We've been here!"  The blog has taken a backseat due to all of the facetime we are able to have with so much of our family & friends!  Hopefully, over the next week I'll get back into the groove of writing.

The journey was long and more than a bit bittersweet.  Overall, the girls did fantastic but we did arrive in Dallas running on adrenaline.  Dallas was the first time we had a delay and those 3 hours seemed a bit longer for some reason!

We made it in to Jackson later than expected but we were greeted by the most beautiful faces.  Hugs are a gift from God - of that I am certain.  There were signs, gifts, balloons (that can now be found in the airport ceiling), hugs, tears, and lots of pictures (of which I've yet to see - I need to check on that).

We are trying to soak up every moment.  It's such a wonderful feeling to know you are with so many who have loved you for so long and through so many different seasons. There's been some reverse culture shock but having family & friends around to get us through those first trips to Walmart and to set up phones has helped tremendously. The girls are loving all of their time with grandparents, aunts & uncles, and the like.

Thank you all for covering our family in prayer - not just during the trip home but for every moment of our 1st term in Madagascar.  You are a gift to us that we do not take for granted.  We can't wait to hug your necks!!

After we recover from jet lag - I'll be sure to get more than just some iphone pics but for now they'll have to do :)
