Traveling Back To Guatemala 2016

Last Friday we returned to Guatemala after a pretty amazing time at home with family and friends.  It was a whirlwind month packed full of outings and activities. We tried to squeeze in as much as we could to fully take advantage of our time there.  Because of that we were way more tired returning than we were going.  It was fun though and we loved every minute of it!

He said he was having a snack buffet.

This was our first trip home with no stroller, diaper bag, sippie cups, etc.  It was nice!  Not everything about my boys getting older makes me sad.

After a long day of travel and several delays we arrived back in Guatemala on Friday night.  

We stayed the night at our mission house in Guatemala City.  The next morning we went out to get in our car and much to our surprise we found it brightly decorated with balloons and streamers.  There was a sweet note welcoming us back and snacks waiting for the boys in their seats.  How sweet is that!  Another missionary family had done that for us before they left for a trip to the States.  It blessed our hearts and made us feel loved and happy to be back.

We have spent the week getting unpacked and settled back in.  In addition to that I have been working on some school stuff and David has been busy out making visits and checking on the work. We head back to Muyurco this afternoon for Bible study and are excited about seeing them again after our break.  We are also trying to get things ready for our upcoming team.  They arrive on Sunday evening.  It is a team of ten with five adults and five youth.  The boys are very excited about the teenagers that are coming!

It's good to be back home.  I am glad to be back in my kitchen and sleeping in my bed.  I'm thankful for our time away but now that it's over it's time to "hit the road running".  There is a lot of work to be done and we are refreshed, recharged, and ready to take it on full speed ahead.
