We're Here!!

We made it! We are staying in Entebbe for the night because we have to travel through Kampala to get to Jinja, and there is some rioting going on right now in Kampala. We will be leaving at 5am to head into Jinja....we just thought it wasn't safe to travel at night. Our flights went well, we all slept and ate and slept and ate...
Tomorrow is Katie's "praise and worship" day for her sponsored kids. They will start lingering in around 8am and the bongos will start beating around 10:30, then games, singing, and eating! I can't wait to see all of Katie's girls. we should arrive just in time for me to grab Josie Love from Amani, strap her on my back, and head for all of the fun!
A little funny for ya'll.....we pulled up to our hotel for the night. I must say it is the ritz carlton of africa. FANCY! FANCY! It has wifi and all of the "extras"! We start walking to our rooms, and they led us around the FANCY part of the hotel to a smaller building
that is slightly unkept. Our showers had frogs, lizards, roaches, there is no password for the internet....laughing hysteriacally, we are trying to figure out how you are able to stay in the "front part?!?" Oh well, we obnly have a few hours to sleep....I LOVE me SOME Africa!!

Off to bed, will be in touch tomorrow!! Love to all of my kiddos...mama loves you!
