Just to let you know, we arrived safe and sound in Madrid on Saturday morning. Our flight was an hour late due to a late start from Miami, so by the time we got home we only had time for a couple hours of sleep before we headed to church. It was SO good to be back home with our church family. We went to bed on Saturday night and didn't get up until noon on Sunday!
This morning we dropped Troy at the airport; he will be in Amsterdam for some training this week. Then we went to pick up the dog. She was thrilled to see us, and after a bath to get rid of at least the first layer of dirt, she is sacked out in her bed. I can tell she is happy to be home too.
The rest of the week will involved getting Nic's stitches out, buying school uniforms and supplies and the kids' first day on Thursday. In between I will try and tackle unpacking and organizing what didn't get done before we left. Frankly, a nap is much more appealing. But I'm trying to resist and stake awake drinking iced coffee. It's ridiculously hot here...91 right now. Hope that changes soon!
If you are interested in praying for us in September but don't get our email updates, the prayer list is here.
