It is great to be in our home again after 3 years away. Our intentions were to sell our acreage in 2008, but God in His providence knew how important it would be for us all to have a place to come back to that we could call home for this year.
We flew Port Moresby to Hong Kong to London to Chicago. The entire flying time was about 28 hours, not including an eleven hour layover in London. Doug’s parents, and sister Rebecca, husband Jim and their 2 little girls picked us up in Chicago. It took us about a week before we weren’t falling asleep at 6 or 7 pm every night. Doug’s parents live on a lake so the kids had a great time swimming and kayaking, and tubing with their Uncle Devin.
We spent 3 weeks in Canada with Benita’s family. There were a few more boy cousins for the boys to play with and we didn’t see them most of the day as they kept themselves busy with building forts, 4-wheeling, and fishing.
