But they are HERE! Like I said...hard to believe. I emailed my dad's long time office manager asking which was harder to believe: That mom and dad had 2 daughters living in Africa or that Mom and Dad were actually going to Africa to visit them! Earlier this week I told several people...it is just surreal because for so long the possibility of someone coming to see you is...well...not a possibility b/c you are on the other side of the world. And then all of a sudden you are getting ready for them to come...and THEN...you SEE them in the airport and it is pretty shocking. Mom said she can understand now why/how we think (all the time), "How did we get here and What are we doing?!"
I m excited about a fun week of letting them see/experience our life here. We are having a braii on tuesday night (that s a south african bbq), showing them the regular day at school, basketball practice, dinner with our favorite families here, etc. It is just the normal routine but with our parents! Dad has been asked to speak in chapel which i am very excited about. i love hearing him speak.
I just wanted to give a quick update. I will try to do so as much as possible throughout the week. yay for family visitors!
