Our few days in Arizona were all about Isla getting in touch with her Hutcherson roots…
We had lots of good family time, more than one trip to Target, a fun time catching up with friends and supporters at our open house, and a chance to share a bit of our life with our church on Sunday morning.
Over the course of two weeks in three different states, we somehow managed to acquire 50 more pounds of stuff to bring back – including some princess costumes for the girls. When Caleb opened his suitcase here in Beirut, he discovered that those princess costumes are great at shedding glitter… so it’ll be a sparkly few days for us as we get settled back into every day life! :)
Thanks for your prayers for our travels… first two flights were oh so very fun with a screaming, not sleeping baby, but we were soooo thankful to have an extra seat in between us on 4.5 hour flight from Paris to Beirut. I went all Lebanese and about had a smack-down with the goofy gate agent who was convinced that our carseat was way to big for the plane (because apparently, she told me, planes in America are much bigger)… but we were finally able to convince her to let us “just try it out.” Ahhh, bliss. Isla slept for most of the flight, giving Caleb and me a much needed chance to close our eyes for a bit.
She’s now sleeping – hopefully for the next 8+ hours – and Caleb is snoring quite loudly, so I guess he’s out too. So, I’m calling it a night.
