We would really like to blog from Ethiopia. We had planned to all along. But there is no Internet access where we're staying. There are some hotels with Internet access, but I am told there can be surges that can destroy your laptop. We were strongly advised against bringing our Macbook. I am pretty sure we can still blog updates using a computer at one of the local hotels, but we will probably not be able to post pictures. We don't know how we would upload them. We going to try to send some pictures over our phone and see if my sister could possibly blog them. We'll at least give it a shot.
This weekend, we finalized most of the things we needed to do around here before leaving. Thankfully, it felt relaxed, not frantic, and we still had plenty of family time, soaking in our last days as a family of four.
On Saturday we had a family movie night and, afterward, the kids asked if they could sleep in our bed. We let them do this on special occasions and we were trying to make this weekend special for them. When I came to bed, they were sleeping like this -
You'd think based upon how close they were sleeping that Dan and I slept in a twin sized bed. But, alas, this is not the case.
