We Made It!
Well, we are officially in the land of the free and the home of the brave. We had a fairly uneventful trip, except for the part about the girls and I having some crazy cold, complete with fevers and coughing and runny noses. Oh, yeah, and the fact that I got pulled out of the line at each flight, for a full pat-down and luggage inspection, EVERY TIME. I guess the camp t-shirt was a dead giveaway. Not sure if I looked like a security threat or if they thought the fevered look of a woman with a cold was some sort of ploy.
Either way, we landed in Atlanta and Ken's mom and sister and her three kids (who have grown like weeds) drove us back to Greenville. My fever has broken, but the girls are having a terrible time of it. It's pretty impossible to enjoy the yummy foods we've been dreaming of, but I'm sure there will be plenty of time for that. We just regret that no one feels strong enough yet to catch up with friends. We are only a few miles away from folks we've missed terribly, but sick kids oughta be in bed. So we'll wait on that, too. All in due time.
We will be speaking at our home church, Carolina Heights, tomorrow morning. If you're in the Greenville area, swing on by. If not, we'd sure appreciate the prayers as we fight these fevers and get reacquainted with the world above the equator.
