36 hours!

The final preparations are being made... bag packing, list checking, money getting.... crazy making! Church in the morning, lunch with megan's grandparents, final laundry and packing, and then... on a plane first thing monday morning.

Drew had a final play date with one of his friends today. It was very sweet and very sad when Drew got home and had to say goodbye. He's really excited about going, but also sad to leave his friends. I think we all feel that way, but know that God is leading the way.

5 days and counting...

I can hardly believe that we leave in 5 days. We've spent the last seven days in Las Vegas visiting family. It was a really special time that went by far too quickly. I'll be posting some pictures from that visit later.
I just finished unpacking from that trip and am feeling a bit overwhelmed about packing for Nicaragua. There is a lot to do in the next several day. Pack, get our bills in order, spend time with friends and family, and much more.
We have received nearly ALL our funding... wait... let me say it again.... We have received nearly ALL OUR FUNDING! Amazing! It's really happening!

We bought airplane tickets today! Amazing! We'll be leaving on March 1st (just a short 25 days from today) and returning on July 6th. This is just incredible.

We were going back and forth on what date to return and how to get down there (which airline, or to accept some frequent flier miles someone offered us) this week. When I first looked at the ticket prices last month, they were about $630 ea., and then I looked on Sunday and they were up to $735! Ugh! I was frustrated. So, as we debated about using these miles, Nick and I finally felt that it really wasn't going to work out to do that. I went back online again today and the ticket prices were back down to $630! God is Awesome!
