Home Again

Coming home from this trip to India was indeed bitter sweet. I was, personally, never so glad to see our little white house after 30 hours of travel, two and a half weeks of hot and humid A.C. free weeks, and a rather cranky toddler who never quite got over jet lag.

But, I don't think I can quite describe how difficult it was for Conrad to say good-bye to his father. While we were there he declined rather quickly and we are almost certain that this was the last time we would see him on this side of eternity. It was hard for me, but this is the man who raised my husband...and he's on the otherside of the world.

In the next few days I'll try to give a few snapshots of our trip to India. In the meantime, pray for Conrad's dad, and Conrad. He continues to decline, and we imagine Conrad will be making another trip to India soon.

Danielle and Conrad!
I am so happy that you are home safely and hope that the kids readjust to Ohio time easily! However, I am so sorry to hear of Conrad's father's declining health! You all are in my prayers! Love,

I'll pray for a quick adjustment back to America time. Looks like you got greeted on your return with a snow storm?
We're at a conference/ retreat in my former Asian country. It's been a really good time... so refreshing and what I needed!

Gracie looks cute in all of those little outfits! I hope they are getting over their jet lag a little better now. We love you all!!
