After possibly the longest 48 hours of my entire life, we set foot in the Austin Airport to friends and family (pictures to come later) in what was the sweetest homecoming ever.
Drew slept for about 5 of the 28 hour trip... I also found out that size 3 diapers are completely insufficient. To all of you I hugged in the airport, I am sorry.
We ran into some drama with the embassy in Nairobi Monday afternoon (scheduled to fly out Monday night). The woman there was NOT going to process our visas that day. She had NO intention of doing it, siting some "child clearance that had not happened in the States" hmmm...not likely. With our sheer diplomacy (stubbornness and begging), but really mostly desperate prayer, she relented, and 2 hours later walked out with our completed Visa packet. It was truly a miracle, one of MANY over the course of the previous 3 weeks.
Drew and I had a very good few days alone in Nairobi, we went to the Nairobi museum, out to eat, to visit Aliyah in the hospital, down to socialize with the hotel staff, and watched WAY too many Modern Family episodes for his tender age. I had a fantastic "supplier"(of movies), Simon, down on the street outside the hotel.
Andy had the house spotless when we walked in last night! It now looks like a bomb went off. Drew was up and down in the night, but I had taken 2 Ambian and don't really remember it all. Good thing for Andy! Jet lag nausea is setting in this afternoon. So, I'll go. Preston and Lucy are in LOVE!
So am I.
