Today is our last day here. I can't believe it!
On the one hand, it seems to have flown by. On the other hand, I'm so ready to be home. Maybe the "ready to be home" hand is the one with the carpal tunnel acting up. :)
We've missed our family and friends and especially our Phoebe girl. I can't wait to hug Phoebe the second I see her!
Yesterday was our American consulate appointment. Turns out, that's not even something we had to go to the consulate for. Our guide went on behalf of all of the families and took the paperwork. Today, in about 30 minutes, we will leave to go to the consulate for the "swearing in" ceremony and to get our babies' visas. At that point, all of our official business here will be done.
Our flight leaves tomorrow at 7:50am, which means our bus leaves the hotel at 5:30am. We land in Tokyo around 1pm and leave for DFW around 6pm. Keep us in your prayers for a smooth, "quick" flight. When we land in Dallas, around 3:30pm Saturday, we will have been "up" for 24 hours. Hopefully, there will be lots of sleep to be had on the plane.
Thank you all so much for your comments on the posts. It's been great to have that contact with home.
Love to all and see you soon.
