unofficial travel dates

Just got our update on our unofficial travel dates. We are scheduled for an embassy appointment for February 22. There are 10 families on the same embassy appointment. We are looking at tickets for Friday February 19 -Friday February 26.

We don't get official travel dates for who knows when? Being flexible here. Not a problem. Learning to be breezy. On a positive note, it gives me another week of school with the girls here at home, more time to prepare and more time to pray about bonding and attaching with the boys.

Dear Sweet Peas,

I have my calendar marked with our trip to Africa. I am counting down the days until your laughter and smiles fill our home.

Love, Mom
