Well where to start? We were gone, out of the country in Curacao, from Tuesday to Sunday. It went by so fast. It was really great to get to see my parents. They brought a million (this might not be an exaggeration) things, including gifts, peanut butter and many other things. Overall it was a great trip. We got lots of time in the pool, some time on the beach, a couple of bike rides and even a couple of little date times.

Honestly though it was really hard to come back to Venezuela. For me at least. When you go from consistent power, water, good food, etc, it's just really difficult to come back to a place that is so inconsistent. Even yesterday we didn't have the internet for the entire afternoon and it decided to go out while I was in the middle of a Skype conversation. That just feels really hard sometimes, especially when it feels like our only connection to many people that we love is only through the internet.

It was a really great trip though. We enjoyed the time with my parents. The kids loved being around Grandma and Grandpa. Leah even on the last day there knocked on their door gently right when she woke up. See we had connected rooms, what a blessing! And I had told her that she had to knock gently to see if they were awake. So she was doing exactly that! But sadly they had left earlier that morning. Broke my heart. But they really did love getting to see Grandma and Grandpa!

That's all for now. We'll try to update more in the next few days. For now, we're trying to get caught up on school, laundry and preparing for the team to arrive on Saturday! And then the real chaos begins!
