Leaving on a jet plane....

I leave for Uganda on Tuesday! Crazy how fast that snuck up. I have mixed emotions today- I am sad about leaving Greg and feeling silly for feeling sad (and emotional, I'll admit it). I am excited to see another part of the world, taste another type of food, and love another type of people. Today, though, it's overshadowed by the stress of packing and sadness of leaving (for two whole weeks!). Oh man. It's SUCH a good thing we don't have any kids or this would be impossible!

Good luck Carrie! We'll be praying for you and Greg! Being away sucks but is sometimes necessary.

Have a great time! Meg and I will be praying for you. I can't wait to hear about what God does in and through you on this adventure. I'm sure Greg will survive while you're gone :)

If you do find your self in that "impossible" situation I'd suggest talking to my wife. She has amazingly weathered multiple times I've had to travel for work with kids:

1. I spent 2 weeks in Chicago when we had Taylor

2. Then a few months later I spent another week in Chicago.

3. For almost a year I was traveling to L.A. for 1 week every month.

After TJ was born
1. I spent 2 weeks in the Philippines
2. I'm about to leave for Guatemala for 1 week

I have NO idea how she does it other than she is an AMAZING woman without whom, I would be desolately lost and completely at a loss to function.

I know you are probably already in Uganda. I have been praying for you. I am excited to see what God has for you to learn and see. Take it all in, because I want to hear all about it when you get home. I'll be seeing Greg on Sunday. I'll give him a hug for you. Love you...
