This is it!

This is the last post before we leave tomorrow.  Today our travel agent called and said he's 95% certain that our trip will go on as planned.  We are very thankful for this!!!  Just hoping that he is correct too!

We have packed, unpacked, and repacked a few times now.  I think we are all set to go though.  Today I went and got a pedicure, then went to the library to check out a few books for the trip.  After we got home, I installed the car seat in the van.  That felt very strange!

My sister is going to try to update our blog if we can get in touch with her during our time there.  We are not taking our laptop, but there is a PC there but it only has dial-up internet.  So, check the blog often for updates!

Thank you to everyone for your prayers and support.  We appreciate everything that each of you has done for us during the last five years!

Three more days until we will see Noah for the very first time!!

See you all in a week and a half!

So excited for you!

If you have trouble with the internet, head over to the Sheraton. They have a good internet connection and it's very reasonably priced.

Of course the most important thing is that you enjoy your baby boy and have a wonderful time in Ethiopia. Soak everything in. It's just amazing!!!
