Thanks for visiting and keeping up with our fun!

We made it. If not for my mom I would have left the kids in Germany. I could not have done it without her. Boys were, however, troopers and slept a great deal on the plane.

Checked into hotel this morning and will move into our apt after church on Sunday.

More to come...

A bit of bad news....

In an attempt to do everything he can to prepare our arrival, Carl investigated McDonald's yesterday and ordered the "maharaja mac" (which was probably ill advised for several reasons but anyways...)

Apparently, it was disgusting. Now, a Big Mac in the US is basically disgusting too, but it's just wonderfully disgusting.....wonderfully, satisfyingly disgusting....

I'd Better Get Over There

Our departure is just 4 days away, and it couldn't be soon enough. We miss Carl like crazy, and I think he needs me. I am afraid a cultural chasm may be developing between us. This morning, I heard him over the phone tell someone else to "ring his mobile." What??!!

Thank you thank you thank know who you are...

"And walk in love, as Christ also has loved us and given Himself for us, an offering and a sacrifice to God for a sweet-smelling aroma. Be filled with the Spirit, speaking to one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing and making melody in your heart to the Lord. For we are members of His body, of His flesh and of His bones." Eph. 5:2, 19,30

Almost "Home"

Thanks for all the prayers and e-mails and texts! Things have been running relatively smoothly down here. Seems that India is not opposed to having us come for a visit. I won't say they haven't made us work for it though. Tomorrow is our last step in the visa process and then we'll head back to Dallas.

I am so thankful that tomorrow is my last day of feeling alone and confused surrounded by throngs of people speaking Hindi.

Oh wait a minute....

The Journey Begins

We are all packed and immunized. We'll head to Coram Deo this morning so that Samuel's teacher can get him all settled for the coming semester. She has offered to send us his work monthly so he can stay on track.

Then we're off to the Endless Sky to grind a little bit of God's dirt into our souls.

Next we'll head down to Houston to spend some precious time with Great Granny, Grandma, Aunt Kelly and the cousins.

Then we'll head back to Dallas to catch our flight.

I don't know what else a mother who is hastily packing up her home and two small children to move to a foreign country (a country, mind you, that I found out today requires us to take daily malaria pills which are not produced in a chewable or liquid form...I digress) would be doing tonight other than creating a blog.
