Things have been wild this week as we prepare to leave Elias with my family in Wisconsin for a week and Matthew and I prepare to go to the Dominican Republic with World Vision.
I have myself and Elias about 80% packed. I have to finish everything tonight, since Elias and I leave bright and early tomorrow morning.
Thank you for all the kind notes and comments of prayer and excitement as we prepare for this trip.
I know it is going to be life changing.
- I have never used a passport before.
- I have never seen the type of poverty we will see.
- I have never been in a one-room house.
- I have never not had clean water.
- I have never imagined a life for Elias where he would not go to school.
I know my list of nevers will increase dramatically next week.
I pray my heart is broken and teachable and that each of you will feel like you are there with me.

I would love the dino or sports one! I work with a 2 yr old that refuses a sippy cup and this might just be what gets us to get him to use one! THANKS!
