Day Six

Sorry for not getting this one out earlier. I hope you can all forgive me for being a little selfish in wanting to spend some more time with the kids. We are getting closer and closer to the kids with each and every moment. I can’t remember if I wrote this earlier, but I’m kind of glad that we will be leaving in the early morning.… Read the rest

That is one thing that a 24 hour journey will do to you, with little rest and uncomfortable confines.… Read the rest
