The long awaited for day is finally here. I've done so much preparing that I have time to sit at the computer this morning. Shouldn't I be running around like a chicken with my head cut off?

Jeff has left for work and Shawn is off for school. It is hard to say good bye.

Laura (my daughter) will be taking me to the airport. We meet at the airport at 10am, there are 35 of us with tons of boxes and luggage. Our flight leaves at 115pm NWA to Detroit, then to Frankfurt. We will get on Sri Lanka airlines in Frankfurt to Columbo (capital of Sri Lanka). We are scheduled to arrive at 430am Thursday morning. That is Wed 430pm in MN. The orphanage that we will be staying in is very close to the airport. We were advised to bring ear plugs for sleeping at night.

I will write when I have a chance. I look forward to hearing from you.

Love, Susie
