We're on our way!!

I really can't believe it but we are ON OUR WAY! We are sitting in a Bangkok airport having gone 1 plane ride out of 3 already! We still have about 25+ hours to go but we're doing good! Josiah and Jude have been wonderful so far. It's currently 12:06am and we have to wait until 2am before our next flight from Bangkok to Seoul, Korea.
I found this map online. It's not all that clear but if you find Bangkok and then look in the top you'll see Seoul. We'll arrive in Seoul at 9:30am their time. We will then leave Seoul at 12pm and arrive at 9:30am at DFW! I am so excited! The boys are a bit to handle and all of these business people keep looking at us like we are absolutely nuts! LOL! They are going by with their one suitcase and we have 6 suitcases and 3 carryons! Ha!

It's really strange to see so many farangs already! There are a lot of westerners in Bangkok and I have had to teach Josiah that not all of them are friendly. He really loves what he calls "english people" but he has yet to learn the lesson that not all people are interested in children...nor are they going to smile back.

He just doesn't seem to get why these people aren't treating him like the Thai people do. We had a little talk and he understands better now and he is smiling at every westerner he sees just to see if they are "good" or "bad". I tried to explain but this seems to be the point at which his reasoning stops. So he's met some very disinterested faces and some very friendly faces.

At this moment John is allowing the boys to run around the airport in hopes to run off some steam but the truth is that as our boys get more and more tired they seem to draw on some unknown energy source. They seem to never slow down unless made to lay still long enough to realize they are utterly exhausted!

Well, John is in need of assistance and I should attempt to get the boys to sleep some how. This new airport is awesome but it is COLD! I never thought I'd say that but it's freezing in here! God is so good - even as we were leaving I felt the peace of God...just knowing that He is with us and at work...even as we return to America.

Thank you for reading and please be praying for us!
