Nov. 18

What a very long day.   The second medical exam is complete with the results being sent to our embassy even now.   We still have one more legal paper to turn in at the embassy Thursday morning, but that shouldn’t be any problem.    The drive into town in the misty morning hours was one of life’s simple pleasures:  Zach was cradled and sleeping in my arms, and Philip slept peacefully on my lap.   By mid day, the heat had arrived and I was covered with slobber-soaked animal crackers, smeared into a paste on the shoulder of my shirt.  By the end of the day, we were all sweaty, filthy and asleep in the back seat, sprawled out with all our gear all over the car, bouncing along over the potholes back towards Jinja.       And this, my friends, is what success looks like sometimes!

Zach’s first birthday will be tomorrow, but we may wait until Dad and Joseph arrive in a couple of days before we start the celebrations.  Luckily, Zach won’t be remotely aware of the switch.

Please pray for safe travels for Tague and Joseph.  They leave today (Tuesday) and arrive Wednesday evening very late.   I am more than eager to see them again.
