back in the US

we’ve been back in the US 2days. we have our mobile phone situation sorted. I finished the final for a class I was taking this morning. right now I’m sitting at a Barnes and noble reading my kindle and drinking a cup of coffee. I’ll write more in a few days about bring back. thank you to everyone who prayed for us the past three years and on our trip back.

I can’t believe

in less than 1week we’ll be back in the US. that is incredibly hard to believe. I wonder what it will be like. I know one thing though … it will be difficult to leave our English friends for the summer.
