I just wanted to give a quick update on what's going on with our upcoming African trip. Things are really going great as we keep preparing for our Swaziland God-adventure. We're selling scads of jewelry. B's passport made it here in about 2 weeks from the time we applied. Grandpere and Nana Rose paid for A' passport which we applied for last week and we're awaiting its arrival. We've mailed in all our paperwork and the first 2 deposits needed by Children's HopeChest. Our luggage is purchased. Skirts are bought (still need 1 or 2 more for A). Comfy shoes are in the closets. Just a few things left to do (like get some shots...YAY!...not) but basically its just a matter now of waiting and praying and waiting some more til those last few days when we go crazy with all the packing and doing a million last minute things that we didn't think about doing til the last minute! ;)

Thanks again to all of you who have shown us love and support...whether its thru prayers, financial gifts, making jewelry, donating beads, buying jewelry, encouraging emails, or just patiently listening to me as I go on and on and on about Swaziland. All those things are truly appreciated. I am amazingly blessed.

How exciting! I am so happy for all of you... even if I am totally green with envy!

Looking at the glint in her eyes, I'd say she's got plans to skip over to Paris! ;-) Kidding, of course...I hope you all three with blog LOTS about your trip when you return. Hey, will you be able to blog from there? You think? maybe?

I definitely think she'd be finding herself in Paris if she could manage to think up a way to get there!

And not sure about access to a computer or the internet while in S'land. I don't have a laptop and I don't know if the guest house we'll be staying in has one or if the folks I'm traveling with will have one. I know that there ARE internet cafes in Swaziland (definitely didn't have THOSE when I lived there) but whether or not we'll have the chance to use them, I just don't know.

We just might have to rely on old fashioned diaries til we can get back and blog. Talking about internet withdrawal!!!!!!
