A New Chapter About to Begin

Our chapter in Ethiopia is quickly drawing to a close!  As we drove around yesterday, Zinabu would say "America" any time we would see nice buildings as we were traveling around Addis Ababa.  I was explaining "not yet!  Ety-op-ya."  That new chapter is almost here!  We're packed up and checking out.  This morning we will do a little shopping at the market, pick up the Visas for the boys, and then grab lunch.  We'll finish up our last afternoon in Ethiopia, then head back to the airport for the long journey home.

For friends and family who are interested, we will be having a "meet and greet" at the airport in Grand Rapids on Friday afternoon.  Our scheduled arrival time is 4:55pm on Delta flight 1662 from Minneapolis - we'd love to see as many of you as possible there.  This will be your one opportunity to meet the boys for quite some time(or at least see them, they may be sleeping).  Once we return home we're going to spend several weeks under the radar as everyone adapts to the "new normal".  Thanks for all your love and support!  We'll really miss Ethiopia, but we can't wait to get home!
