A little R&R

Want yall to know we made it to Ga safe and sound just in time for supper last evening.

Getting out the door was not what I expected. I dont know why it surprised me. THe bigness of this is really taking me by surprise. I cant explain it.

I just cant believe its happening.

Our little dog kept trying to run out to the car.
She usually goes on trips with us and travels well.
I called my dad SOBBING.
I asked if we could just bring her with us.
I feel horrible..... it added one more thing on Moms "to do " list.
The great dane kept wanting to follow us out the door. They knew what suitcases meant.
I think they also knew they had never seen that many suitcases before.
I dont know how P got it all in the little Jetta but he did.
We pulled out around 11:15 am and drove all day.
I cried for the first hour.
I had a few people to call and on one I only wrote 9 out of 10 numbers.
So it was like, "Well I guess we wont be visiting them on the way up."
E and his little dog slept most of the way.

We went to church this morning and are resting.
Once mom leaves to go to bible school P and I will run to the big box store for a few mroe things. I thought wed dont the last trip there.... no such luck. I was told matchbox cars will be great gifts for the little boys and they are $5 there! So I can check one more thing offa my list.

We will need to leave around noon tomorrow. Drive an hour to the train. An hour trip on the Marta. THen we allowed time to spare plus the 2.5 to 3 hrs they want you to be early. Please pray for us. I am pretty anxious about the flight.

We will land at 10:17 and we will have a ride to take us to our host home.
THe lawyer will be picking us up at 8 the next morning to be at the orphanage at 9.

just beyond words.
I would close with more pics like I intended but they arent on this computer.

So be patient and on Tuesday you will see new pics of little G with her mommy, daddy and brother.

I remain,
Under His wings,
