Tomorrow is countdown day 4.
How did we get here?
I made a final shopping list and packing list. Tomorrow is shopping day rain or shine.
All the nifty baby supplies at my house have to stay at my house because my babies will still be there. It will be good to have a back up pack of all our stuff for when we get home.
I've packed clothing and a few supplies but Saturday is get-down-to-business day! We will be in China for 17 days and I've got to get busy!
I'm praying the Lord will guide my thoughts and direct my heart these next few days to draw especially close to my kids in these days before we leave. I made this (so not Pinterest-worthy) paper chain with the dates we will be gone and daily scriptures for my kids. They can tear off one link each day until we are home.
Our fabulous homeschool mom's group "Mom's Rest Stop" had a shower for me today. The décor was so sweet and really, really, REALLY made me ready to go get these babies!!! Isaac and Isabella are coming home. ISAAC AND ISABELLA ARE COMING HOME!
Another group of friends is having a shower on Sunday for us... (I know, I have the BEST friends, EVER!) If you would like to come and did not get an invite, please, please message Fiona or message me and get her info I'd LOVE to see you there before we go!
Please pray for God to prepare the hearts of our children. Pray for God to be glorified through this whole trip. Pray for our light to shine and His will to be done. Pray for our other children at home and my Dad as he leads this crew in our absence.
Thank you to all who have come along side of us. We are so blessed to have The Church all around us!
