We made it!


Well, we made it safely! We are checked into our hotel for the night and will be heading over to Katie's early in the morning for feeding program....

I forgot how much I missed this place! The people and their accents, the heat, the smell (it can be gross sometimes, but its part of what makes Uganda Uganda), the mosquito nets...EVERYTHING. I'm so glad to be back.

The airplane flights (and food), however, were not missed. We took a 2 hour flight from Nashville to D.C., then had a short layover and boarded the plane to Belgium...unfortunately, as soon as we boarded the flight, it lightninged so we sat in the runway for 2 hours

before we were finally able to take off. But hey, we're here now and that's all that matters...

Obviously, we haven't been taking pictures because we've been flying the past 24 hours, but I did snag a few on my phone...

Air plane food....I think this was mac n' cheese and tofu chicken...?

Landing in D.C....

Trying to pass time.... :-)


More to come as the week goes on! I'll try to post every night.

Mom, give the little ones love from dad, Michael, and Annabelle and I! Hope your conference goes well, love and miss you all.
