Alright. We know we won't hear the end of it from some of you out there but... we're cancelling our trip east.
Call us lame. Call us lazy. Call us fearful. We simply have recognized our limitations. Driving through the night with a 3 year old, 2-year old, and almost 11-month old, staying in four different locations within 8 nights, not including 2 nights sleeping/not-sleeping in the minivan, only to return with William having a night meeting that Monday, and not to mention the fact that we didn't budget for this trip in advance since we didn't anticipate it... not going to happen.
So, instead we're going to have some QUALITY family time during this Advent season. Did you know that Advent means coming? Well, we're excited to really prepare for the coming of Christ.
But, we are sad that we won't get to see and hug so many loved ones. Just this evening William was looking at our 2006 scrapbook with Joshua and Saraina before bed and Joshua was so cute pointing to "Leste" (his name for big cuz Celeste) and "V" (his name for his Auntie, my sister who I call Seve) and his forever pal Silas (he actually says his name the right way now!!!).
We trust the Lord will open up another opportunity (preferably in warmer weather!) one day soon. Rejoice with us as we wait for His perfect timing!
Thanks for understanding,
