Trip Day 1 (1 Day Early)

Our trip to Rwanda began today, one day earlier than planned. Last night Glorieta was hit with 6+ inches of snow, and I-25 was actually closed for a couple hours early in the morning. It snowed most of today and there's a high chance of snow tonight, so we decided to come to ABQ tonight in order to avoid any chance we might have troubles in the morning due to snow. This earlier than expected start ensured today was a non-stop blur of final packing, checking and re-checking, etc., made even more challenging at points as the electricity at our home kept going off and on. Nana was a big help entertaining the kids while Shelly and I finished our preparations. Our great friends the Suggs drove us to Applebee's for dinner (Silas' choice), Target for a last second opportunity to stuff our bags with more donations for the orphanage (and a quick goodbye from Hal, who met us there), and then to our ABQ hotel. We're now resting comfortably less than 1 mile from the airport and looking forward to tomorrow.

So, for the past 2 months we've wondered how we'd be able to be ready to leave on time...and God helped us leave one day early...
