Less than 13 hours before we take off on our first airplane, Seth has a fever and just vomited. He started coughing earlier today, and tonight he's having trouble sleeping because of it. PLEASE PRAY the vomiting is only because of a reaction to ibuprofen and not a symptom of illness. The thought of traveling with all these little people SICK is just, well, sickening. :(
Please also pray for Isaac. He's really struggling with sadness over leaving his friends and life here. He's super excited to see his friends in Dallas, but he doesn't remember Waxhaw well or have real friends there yet, so the idea of living there for the school year - and only being in Dallas for a couple weeks - is depressing to him. I'm trying to remind him how kind God has always been, and how many good things He's filled his life with everywhere we've ever lived, but I don't want to minimize his grief either. No matter who and what lies on the other side of the ocean, it won't be his buddies and his community here.
Love and gratitude,
