Wow, how the time flies! Most of our friends have their kids back in school, and we are back to school also (as of this morning!).
Our packing and moving when exceptionally well, though I can't say it was without its moments. Moving is always a bit sad-- it's hard to say goodbye and tie up all the loose ends of a life you've enjoyed for a number of months. We were incredibly blessed by many of you who stopped by to pray for us, who took time to say goodbye, and for the many who have sent encouraging notes as we left.
During our last weeks in Manitoba we enjoyed a lot of good times with Garry's parents and sister-- meals together, good laughs, and great memory-makers. We also did some dirt-biking, coffee drinking, camp fires, and timbit eating with friends.
We arrived in Arizona on Wednesday afternoon and spent the afternoon and evening with some good friends in Green Valley. Thursday morning they took Garry back to the airport to pick up our rental car and we headed out for McNeal, our flight headquarters.
We are getting settled in our guest house here and even got some school done this morning. Garry has been busy at the hangar, meeting with people and getting things organized for our time here as well as things we need for our return to the Philippines the 21rst.
As we reflect on our months of home assignment we cannot believe how blessed we've been. Thank you to each of you who have been a part of that!
