MONDAY (Day 1)

I will try to briefly catch-you-up to speed on the journey so far and I may elaborate more on specific events in the future.

We woke-up at 3:30 AM and departed Auburn as scheduled by 4:30AM. Not as scheduled, William did not sleep at all in the car! We made the airport with no problems and with a bit of Truett Cathy’s famous bird in our belly to ease the transition.

In our effort to stay in two bags, one was overstuffed by about 11 pounds and one was overstuffed by about 15 pounds. Praise God we brought a third bag with us so I stuffed-it, left 6 pounds of powdered milk with Pop, and we continued on the journey.

W loved his first ride in the "big jet plane"! Still didn't sleep at all, but G-man slept some for all of us.

We were greeted in Tegucigalpa by some friends and friends of friends from the orphanage. We made a stop at "Sam's" for some groceries(just the essentials to get us through till the container arrives (wink, wink, nudge, nudge, a little forshadowing). After "Sam's" we went to a local mall and had some Church's "what time's yo services" chicken sandwiches for lunch(we're really roughing it so far). Approximately 70 mile trip to Guaimaca takes a couple of hours but went without a hitch and we were there by 4:30PM or so…

Great part of the trip is that they are in the central time zone as well. They do not practice daylight savings, so they are currently one hour behind us, but close enough!

I've got to go to bed, but if you haven't caught the theme so far...SUPER SMOOTH! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!
