By Jove, We've Done It!

The family and I are firmly on American soil! We were blessed to get the first flight we tried for, to an Air Force base in Washington state. The flight was the absolute coldest flight we've ever experienced: our drinks, candy bars and Nutrigrain Bars actually froze in the cardboard lunchboxes they were in on the floor of the plane. Thankfully, this plane didn't have room for us to lie on the floor, so we avoided frostbite! LOL!

It was about a 9 hour flight, straight from England to Washington. Now we 're waiting for Tim to get here with our rental, them we'll begin the 4 hour drive to our hometown. We're almost home! I'm so excited!

On the down side, The Boys are feverish and I'm starting to feel it too. Ugh. Who needs this while on vacation, right?! Also, the roads are crazy with a storm that has blown in, so I'm nervous about the drive. But I trust God, who didn't bring us this far to leave us.

Cheers all!

  1. Oh my gosh! I've been thinking about you like crazy. You wrote your post about an hour ago, so you should be here in about three hours. Praying the storm isn't too bad on your trip home.

    See ya soon!


  2. yah! so exciting!
    your plane trip in the cold brought me back to my years of flying in the north. everything would freeze....sometimes even the propellers of the plane (we flew those small charter propeller planes). the pilot would have to go out and hand start the propellers by giving them a good push. it was hilarious. it was an amazing adventure.

  3. So glad you've made it so far~hope the rest of your trip goes smoothly! Then you can relax, right? Hopefully everyone will start feeling better, too.
