Leaving on a Jet Plane!
The kids at the school have an unbelievable knack for asking the same question over and over. Take that unique gift and times that by 50-100 and you get close to the number of times we have been asked about our "holiday." Ultimately, Drew could hold it in no longer. Maybe last Thursday or Friday, Drew explained to his class that he is flying to Illinois. That day, we had about 10 little kids asking 10x if we are flying to America. Well, that news got around and we affirmed our plans many more times. Then, every Monday morning they have an all school assembly at the flag pole for announcements and the national anthem. I happened to be watching the assembly this morning and as the announcements were finished, someone mentioned our trip. Drew had his opportunity and proceeded to explain to the vice-principal so she could explain to all the kids that "we are leaving on March 23 and flying back April 16." So, we had a few dozen more inquiries into our travel plans today. Anyways, Lord Willing we will be flying tomorrow. Please pray with us for a good day for the kids which means a good day for us!
