The kids made it to the USA! They had a pretty uneventful trip (once they got out of Livingstone!) Only one luggage piece didn't make it, but it's the one that nobody needed for awhile, and it's on its way to Austin today! Paw & B-maw got to the Austin airport early and waited to see their grandkids - it had been 13 months!

Waiting...until the fire alarms went off and they evacuated the Austin airport! False alarm - back to waiting!

Love the pictures of their first hugs!

Together at last!

They had a 3 hour drive to Brownwood, but their cousins Andie & AJ were waiting up for them! (along with American decor and cute little buckets of goodies for our kids - my sister-in-law Caity is so thoughtful!)

They are having a blast with extended family for their first few days as Blu's parents are hosting a family reunion! (They are also recovering from jet lag - Cason FaceTimed me at 4:30am yesterday!) They head to church camp on Tuesday!

Meanwhile, back at New Day! Blesten is smiling! He ALWAYS wants to be held, so we are trying to give him as much love as possible without spoiling him!

Dad up to his usual antics during an afternoon of 42!

Some last pics of the team that I loved - Misheck went with Jane and others to Bible study and helped to translate!

PRICELESS picture of Justin, Emma, and Stanley!

Sweet Kristin helping to cook nshima at Kids Club!

12 days until we leave! Not much planned - a nice Sunday of worship, 9 full days of teaching/school, Blu doing some more training with our new kitchen manager (and working on endless plumbing issues...), lots of games of 42, an overnight trip to Livingstone with Mom & Dad, and lots of house cleaning/organizing!
