On their way.

Hi, again.
It's me.
I sure have enjoyed our time together but I'm excited to say it will soon be ending because the Alexanders, et. al., are on their way home.

Home with a gift beyond measure. Abe.

I can't wait. I'm dying to kiss those cheeks.

If you've emailed me per the post below and received pictures, I have your email and will give it to Em so that she can send you pictures of Day 8. They did not get the video to me before they left to come home.

I know they have been so encouraged by all of you and the details of their trip will be well worth the wait.
