Just wanted to quickly post that we have arrived safe and sound here in Vancouver. We got here on Sunday and it is great to see Becky's family. We are excited to be back. We will now begin the process of a million 'to-dos' and processing through the last 2 years before we head to Texas in March. Here we go!
Also, it's been an eventful couple of weeks leading up to our arrival so here are some highlights:
- The EMI family threw us a farewell party before we left. Our team was able to share what our time with them has meant, and we were able to say good-bye to the people who have become our world in Uganda. It was great to see everyone one last time and we will miss our Uganda family.
- Before we arrived in Vancouver, we had a week long layover in Montreal to spend some time with Becky's sister and family. It was COOOOOLLLLLDDD! But it was great to spend that time with them and see all their kids. Nathaniel and Bethany loved "snowing" which involved eating and throwing snow, sledding, and eating more snow! We are going to miss them.
- Our last day in Montreal we all went ice skating and it was Nate and Beth's first time to go. They had a great time! It was all going well until Nathaniel fell hard and cut his chin open. So we spent a few hours in the emergency room on our last day. It ended up being a great ER experience and Nathaniel cooperated great. Never a dull moment with little kids.
- Sunday we had our flight from Montreal to Vancouver and the last hour was on the turbulent side. So with about 10 minutes to go, Bethany looks at us and says in her loud silly voice "I'm going to die!!!!" She had this huge grin on her face and most of the people around us began to chuckle as we tried to explain to her that we don't need to say that on an airplane. It was hilarious nonetheless.
