That's it...I'm takin my boy and goin' HOME!!!

This is officially the last post from Guatemala!!! We're leaving tomorrow morning at 7 am...which means that we'll be leaving the hotel at 4 am...ugh...but we're going home and that's the important thing.

We read all your comments and basically came to the same conclusion that God wanted us to have a few days off so yesterday I did what I promised some of you. We went down to the pool and I had a Mojito in the sun for you guys!!! Then we took them both swimming and it took Gabriel a few minutes to figure out what all that water was about but then we had a hard time getting him out of it. We even sat in the hot tub for a bit. Gabriel loves swimming and the water.

Hopefully he'll like flying just as well. Here's praying that he does. And in any case the flight can't last forever so even if he doesn't fly well it'll be over eventually.

Ok ok...Gabrial wanted to post so here he goes...

Roughly traslated means: "I'm going home tomorrow!! and I'm gonna be COLD!!!"

Ok need to go finish packing and then try to get some rest because we've got an early morning...

Love you all and thank you so much for your prayers...They were definately essential in our surviving this trip without losing our minds...

Next time you hear from us we'll be in the states!!! and yes we'll post pictures as soon as we can...

Sending happy travel prayers! I am going to give you a few days before I start bugging you to meet him, so plan on a play date when I get back from Anchorage...after the 29th. We're so happy you are bringing your boy home!

So glad you are on your way! Don't forget to call us when you get to the states or at least from Anchorage. And tell Gabrial he must have started the heat wave up here because the snow is melting fast. Here's praying for good Kodiak weather so you can make your flight in. Give yourselves a hug from us! Miss you and can't wait to see you again.

Have a great, quiet, and safe flight back to Kodiak. At least it's above 30F here now but I'm sure it'll still be quite a shock to his little system....

Congratulations, Beth! It snowed down here in Virginia (!) Maybe we took some of the cold off Kodiak so Gabriel can adjust! Travel safely!
