Our first flight with the kids

We have been in the U.S. for a month now and things are finally starting to settle somewhat into a routine.  
So I thought I would just post a few blogs with pictures of our first few weeks.

Our first flight with the kids is over.  We had a 5 hour flight then a 16 (!!!!) hour flight.  

Colin is pushed the 3 kids through the Entebbe airport.  It was super NOT fun arriving to our gate.  We didn't know that on the type of visa that the kids had, they had to have return tickets.  So at the counter before we even went through immigration, we had to buy Silas and Aggie tickets to come back.  And given all the heat on adoption in the country these past few years, folks were going over all our documents before they would let us leave the country!  But the Lord went before us and we were able to get to the gate and let the kids have a few minutes to run around.

Flying with babies...Oh my goodness.  Corrie was too big  for the basinet, so she had to sleep across me.  Needless to say I  did not get very much sleep during our 25 hours of flying!

Sials and Aggie did great.  They loved the food and the movies and slept ok.  It was really fun for them.

About 12 hours into our second flight, Corrie was done.  So she spent a few hours on the ground in front of us playing.

All in all, it wasn't all that bad.  Just long.  Our kids did great and I am thankful for that.
