whirlwind




(dont mind the raggedy-ann look we're sportin, it was a long day)

oh my, what a few days it has been. pleased to say that we made it safely to brasil. i should have known better than to freak out about how avery would do on the enormously long plane flight. she did amazing. seriously never cried once, didnt ever ask to walk around in the isles, and slept practically through the night on our red-eye flight.

but my goodness it is another world down here. so many people, so hot, and so abslolutely crazy. if i make it out of here with out some crazy brazilian driver hitting me i'll be lucky... (just kidding mom, we'll be safe). i'm quite sure i can get used the living right on the beach though. we're gonna be just fine here.

it was not near as bad saying good-bye to my family as i had imagined. probably because i knew what it is really like having had my in-laws living here for the the past few months, and plus, i'll be home in august, but i can not wait for august to come.
wish me luck.

You'll do great. I went to brasil for a couple of weeks to pick my brother up from his mission. Besides the food poisoning (don't drink the water) it was an amazing experience. You'll love it and you'll be so grateful for the experience, plus who gets to live by a beach all summer? Not us in Logan! Enjoy, glad you made it safe and I remember that horrible plane ride! We look forward to more updates!

Lis! So glad everything worked out on your flight down. What a relief that Ave did so well!! I'm sad we didn't get to see you before you left, but we'll see you for sure in August...and so sorry I didn't return your call!! The last few days of packing up have been a whirlwind for us too, but not to the extend of yours! We made it safe and sound to Burley today :)hope you have the most wonderful time in Brazil!

Oh how good it is to see those faces. We loved having you with us last week...so great. I had a little talk with Avery and told her to be really good on the airplane ride. What a sweetheart. We love and miss you already. Take care and be careful!

Becky said...

Well I did have a little chat with Avery about being a good girl on the airplane. What a sweetheart. It was so good to see those smiling faces. Keep sending picts and we'll be okay. We love and miss you all!
