Flight

Wow, I cannot believe I actually considered leaving this past Friday! So much to take care of. You would think after all this waiting that we would be ready to get right on the plane. Nope!

Right now we are planning our best strategy to fly there and back. These flights to China just don’t happen at any airport at any time. You gotta fly to the “hub” for that particular airline, then a coastal city (usually west), then China. Either the layover is too short to make the connecting flight, or way too long. So, we will probably fly out the evening before and spend the night in the “hub” city. We cannot afford a flight delay.

On the return trip, a friend advised us to spend the night in whatever city we land in America. The more I think about it, this is wise advice. Twelve hours on a plane with a 7, 2, and almost 2-year-old. Not to mention a grumpy mom and dad. Yep, showers and sleep will be the plan. So, expect us a day later. (Hopefully smelling good and in good spirits).

D made the boys some bears at Build-a-Bear. The koala is D’s. The black bear is Z’s. (Maybe he will be an Ole Miss fan?) The light brown bear is E’s.

Love to you all. We covet your prayers.

    OK, gang. It’s time to hop on Trailways and head to China. Take the next 1800 right turns (there may not be lights at the intersection), then 1478 left turns. If all else fails, just tell the driver to head west. There’ll be a boat waiting for you in California which will sail to China where X-Greyhound will be waiting. The boat is slow. Move the fish nets out of the way to make room for your family. Don’t worry about their not speaking English. Folks in Jackson don’t speak English either. Matter of fact, I don’t know for sure what they speak.

    Bring’em home! Time to go! Godspeed!
