So here we are.  In Ohio in December.  This was totally unplanned and unfortunate, but we're here.  We're embracing the chaos of our lives right now.  In fact, it has almost been refreshing for our family to be here, with no plans, with no schedule, with nothing really.  We bought some Christmas presents for the kids at the dollar store last night.  We've borrowed clothes.  We're borrowing a car.  We're eating good food.

But we're still a little bit sad that this all has happened.  Our hearts, our minds, our bodies just weren't prepared for this.  The kids are handling it well.  Being at Grandma and Grandpa's is really enjoyable for the kids.  For Noah, he remembers everything and is loving it.  For Leah, it seems new but she still loves having lots of space and lots of toys to play with.

Tonight we were able to go out to dinner just the two of us and process through a bit of what has happened.  It has all been really surreal and honestly incredibly crazy.  The last week has just been ridiculous so trying to process through it has been nearly impossible.  At this point, we're really grateful to be together and that everyone came out of this ok and with no major issues.

That's all for now.  We'll try to update as we know more.  The hope is that we would return to Venezuela in early January but that hasn't been confirmed yet.  We're hopeful that by mid-January we will be back and settled in VZ.  If not, we'll just go with it.  Flexibility is key when it comes to Venezuela!
