Caleb was in a great mood, even though we had to wake him up so early (that is probably exactly why he was in such a great mood, now that I think about it....being allowed to get up early!). Here he is with his Grandpa and his Opa, pearched on top of our luggage cart.
Caleb practicing for the plane!
We were thankful that once in Michigan we were able to get put in the bulk head seats for the flight over to Korea and also thankful that we were able to sit all together (for some reason our initial tickets put us in seats apart from each other).
The (almost) 14 hour non-stop flight from Michigan to South Korea went "okay." It wasn't as bad as it could have been but it wasn't easy....after we had been in the air for 4 hours I checked the time and could not believe it had only been 4 hours and we still had 10 to go. I almost lost it at that point but then we just settled down and got through it. Somehow. Probably largely due to all your prayers!
Since we were in the bulk head, we were surrounded by other little kids. The family on our right had two little girls, one of which cried most of the flight (I was just glad it wasn't Caleb!!). The family on our left also had two little kids, one 2 year old and one 8 month old. Caleb immediately loved the 2 year old and was constantly trying to climb over and play with him...the 2 year old liked Caleb's toy truck, so it worked out pretty well. We got to talking to that family and found out both of them had worked with YWAM (Youth With a Mission) for over 6 years and so that was really fun for me (since I did YWAM for a while) and fun to meet fellow believers.
So that was our trip. We made it. We are finally here, in South Korea.
