Bobbi requested an update, so this will be a quickie.
We had a great and challenging time at Lake Atitlan. More on that soon. We packed up the apartment yesterday and spent a wonderful evening out to dinner with new friends. The walk around Antigua all lit up was bittersweet.
This morning we will finish packing, Alfredo will pick up up after lunch, and we will head to Luciana's 6th "home" in a month! We will be staying at the Grand Tikal in Guatemala City. Our embassy appointment is TOMORROW! I just can't make myself believe that! We will pick up our Visa on the 6th, and fly HOME on the 7th.
We arrive in Maine sometime between 11 and midnight. Luciana will see her first snow before arriving to our home that will be forever changed. Yippie!
Saturday, we plan to sleep!
It has been nearly impossible to email or update the blog this week... sorry! It has just been so wonderful to be all together and the computer hasn't gotten much attention. (hee hee)
We had many people recommend the Grand Tikal (thanks Donna) and it seems like a place that Sam will have a blast. My big boy deserves to PLAY! I am so proud of him, and it is time for him to get home and have playdates! He is so ready to see his friends... so friends, when we are home, do not hesitate to call Sammy to invite him to play... he hasn't had a friend his age in a MONTH!
We, too, are really looking forward to spending time with friends and family. We know you are all so anxious to meet Luciana after all these months. We can't wait to make some time to get together with everyone.
So, it is time to begin another adventure... our journey back to the city for the final time. Stay tuned!
