We are nearing the end of our journey across the US. We just finished up a week at a KOA campground in New Bern, NC visiting with Eric's family. We have 2 more days in North Carolina in which we will finalize all our packing. On Wednesday we will drive to DC, drop off our luggage at the airport, visit with the former missionary family that we are replacing, then drive back to the airport to leave. We will have a red-eye flight to London, a day in London, and another red-eye flight to Uganda.
We managed to get ALL of Eric's family to the KOA for a week long reunion. What a blessing to have a week of fellowship with your family when everyone loves the Lord and seeking him "not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction." (I Thess. 1:5)
Here are some things we did:
The little boys pushed their little siblings around...
|William and Talitha with Edward and Abigail|
|Jeremy and Abigail|
Ate...and ate...and ate...
|Elizabeth and Joel|
Played with Auntie Liss (Eric's youngest sister/world's greatest aunt for 11 years and running)
|Elyssa and Rebecca|
Had stroller to stroller visits...
|Katherine and Talitha|
Had Tessa, our missionary associate join us...
|Tessa, Joshua, Moriah, and Daniel|
Had a stomach flop when I glanced at my boy who, for a moment, looked more like a teenager and less like a boy...
And did the Virginia Reel
|Daniel and Rebecca|
Lots of fun...
And hard work when there is a *slight* difference in size. :)
Lots of playing...
|Jimmy and Edward|
And did I mention eating?
|Benaiah and Abigail|
And discovered that little girls can get reeeeally messy...(yes...this is Hannah again...the one from the mud puddle incident...)
And still clean up quite nicely. :)
