Well,  leg 2 of our journey is done and I’m constantly amazed at what geat travelers our kids are! After watching a movie on the plane, both of our youngest kiddos made their little beds on the floor of the plane and slept the whole way–without Benadryl! 

So, as we sit in the Starbucks at the Stockholm airport, I’m thankful. I’m thankful for the wonderful friends and family we have back in Reno. I’m thankful that we can travel together as a family. I’m thankful for kids who travel well. And I’m thankful to be back on the road again, seeing new places and meeting new people. 

Yes, to say I’m tired would be an understatement. There is an unexplainable God-given peace that goes along with this tiredness and no matter how exhausted I am right now, I wouldn’t change what we’re doing for the world. 

Thank you for your thoughts and prayers this far!
