Going to America

Wow! Hard to believe it’s already here. I am leaving to visit home tomorrow to see my family and friends and to be in Missy and Dave’s wedding, that is provided I can still fit into my bridesmaid dress! The food here is all carbs plus, culturally every time you enter some ones home they have to offer you food and it is considered very, very rude to turn them down. Needless to say, I have put on more weight then I would have liked. Haha, oh well, that’s why they have seamstresses, right? I have been so excited for the trip I haven’t slept for the past week. It is surreal to me to be coming back to the states. I have been dreaming about the things I will do, and eat, for a long time now! It was a lot harder than I thought it would be to say goodbye to my children at the orphanage, I am only going to be gone for 2 weeks. Some of them were crying hysterically, begging me to not go. It really touched me, but really makes me afraid as to what will happen when I leave for good! I will be states-side for two weeks so if you want to reach me at home, shoot me an e-mail or call my home number. My flight gets into O’Hare on June 14th and will be in Illinois till the 28th. I hope to see as many of you all as I can.

Love you bunches of bananas!
