So we made it here all safe and sound. Things couldn’t have gone much smoother other than they somehow lost my crutches mid-flight (not for use now but in case I would need them at all while here) …but they were eventually found. Coming back was as if I had never left last summer. I just have an amazing peace about everything and I love it!!! Well, just wanted to let everyone (especially my mother) know I got here safely!! :-)Stay tuned…

Up, Up, And Away!!!

The time has come!! I fly out of JFK at 11:30 tomorrow morning for the adventure of my life :-D And to add to the start of my adventure, I will be traveling back with the Minks' youngest son, Simeon (12). He had to delay a previous flight due to recent surgery on his leg so it will be a blast of an 18 hour flight with just a couple-a gimps tryin to make it to the other side of the world :-)
Above is a pic of my first trip to Africa...I took a lil detour to the upper deck (one occasionally needs some fresh air on an 18 hour flight) ;-)
