Sorry about the long absence from the blog!  Our lives have been quite hectic and just plain crazy since we left Minnesota at the end of August!  We visited friends and family spread throughout 5 different states from the beginning of September through the 3rd week in October.  We had some great visits, but it was definitely an exhausting season.  Our girls are troopers, though, and did extremely well.

In the 3rd week of October, we made the biggest transition we’ve had in several years, though, by coming on our “safari” to Africa.  I have a whole post about our first week here, but have had technical difficulties getting it to publish.  I am going to try again tonight, so we’ll see how that goes . . . .

I’ll say “goodbye” for now and write another post soon to give more of an update.  Blessings!

Ma
