Travel plans

We finalized our travel plans today. Since the kids will be out of school and Tom is available, we are going to take a trip to Egypt before we go to Addis. We are leaving Omaha on May 24 and will stay overnight in Washington, DC before leaving on May 25 for Addis. From Addis we will fly to Cairo and spend three days touring Egypt. We will back in Addis on May 30, anxious to meet the twins on June 1. Everyone will fly home together Friday night, and we will be home in Nebraska by dinnertime on June 6. We're flying Ethiopian Air because the flights worked out the best and we got a really great price since we're flying on to Cairo. We've heard mixed reviews about the airline, so I'm hoping it all works out. Actually, I don't even care, as long as we get the twins home!

Paula thank you so much for that comment on my blog.....

I am so happy that your girls are coming home, sad that they are leaving my girls, but the best part is that you will be able to put your arms around my girls and tell them that you talk w/their mom all the time..LOL

Pls. give them lots of hugs and kisses......

What an exciting time for your family!!!
The girls are beautiful and precious!! If you don't already have 'the skill', you'll have so much fun learning to do their hair!

We stopped off in Rome on our way to pick up Faven and Diborah. It was ok, but so many factors made it less fun(just wanted our girls, missed our other kids, struggled with the expense).
Hope you have a GREAT time!
Congratulations!!!

It's wonderful that your older kids get to be there when you receive their sisters! Another one of those priceless lifetime moments!
