We created a count down leading up to our departure for America. This was to help eliminate the daily question of “how many more sleeps until we go to America” from my very anxious kiddos. Well in their excitement the count down went askew and we’ve been down to one day til departure for 4 days now. Finally this morning they could tear of the #1 revealing the last card which reads, “Blast Off”. They are pumped as am I!
We enter the friendly skies at 6 p.m. Joburg time (noonish for most of you) and remain there for 18 hours. Lord help me! So as you are eating lunch, a prayer for peace, rest and sanity on our behalf would be much appreciated.
Tuesday we will touch down and I will set foot in the same country as most of you…how exciting. I’ll be sure to toast the occasion with a Starbucks latte.
I plan to blog my America adventures as time allows as well as check in with my blog friends via your blogs (and a few of you in person—yea!). It might be a bit sporadic but know I am around and for a few weeks an ocean closer!
