Preparing to Return

Today we spent most of the day entertaining the kids, cleaning up the apartment and packing our luggage (to come home....yippee!) Zeke keeps telling me that he wants to go home 'right now!' He must be talking to his daddy.

As a part of the cleaning, Zeke and Gwanddad went around the house confiscating all the spiders that had made there way into the house. In the summer, with the windows open here (no screens) we have had several indoor visitors. One night, just a few days into the trip, I woke up and looked over to find a HUGE spider on the wall next to Brad! I quickly jumped up, grabbed a sneaker and proceeded to beat it a few hundred times until I felt certain it wasn't moving. Ick.

For lunch we drove to Gunzenhausen to eat at a new restaurant we found (The Gasthouse). We had a delicious German meal...I think the best we have had so far on the trip. It was an especially nice place because it had lots of entertainment for the kids: toys, games, outdoor play equiptment. It was really nice.

Tomorrow morning we are heading to Munich..then home (did I mention how excited we are about that...yippee!)

We will be crossing paths over the Atlantic! Tomorrow (Monday) we head out from Houston to Germany on our way home. I hope you all have a good flight!

We'll be praying for a smooth flight and that everyone will be able to rest well.

The pictures have been wonderful to keep us posted on all of the activities. They have also reminded all of us that your family has learned how to enjoy life to the fullest. I love it!

May God hold you ever so gently in the palm of his hand and may you feel the presence of his Spirit surrounding you with love, comfort, strength and wisdom.

We love you guys!
