There’s our plane. The kids did VERY well. They were ready to get off though. We got on the plane at 10:30 am in DC, and arrived at 7:45 am in Addis–one long day is about to begin.

Vail crashed out during supper (he woke up after the food was all eaten and gone–didn’t care though, he just wanted his bed). Emmett and Hudson had done the same at lunchtime.

At the SIM guesthouse. We spent three days there before moving to our current house.

SIM guesthouse. It’s inside a small compound. That red jeepish vehicle is our Maruti “Gypsy”. It runs kind of like the name sounds.

After months of preparations and travels, we arrived! We’ll be at this house for the next 9-10 months.
