Packed and Ready to go!

Well, I think I have everything packed and ready to go. I had to do some rearranging tonight as a couple of suitcases were too heavy. But they all fall under the weight requirement now. I am attaching a picture of the mound of luggage for just Mike, me and the kids. Thank God we are flying on big planes!

Mom and Dad had water leaking into their house today. Dad spent a couple of hours putting salt on the roof to melt the ice. They also had furnace issues ths week, so life has been a bit stressful at the Carlson household!

Well, tomorrow will be a long day! We depart from Notre Dame on the United Limo at 10:10am. Our flight out of Chicago O'Hare is at 5:55pm (CST). We arrive in Addis Ababa early Sunday morning (1:25am) which is really 5:25pm Saturday here in South Bend. So you probably won't hear from me for awhile! I will do my best to update when we arrive, but no promises!

Thank you for all the many emails and prayers. Your support is truly overwhelming!

  1. No doubt the thing you'll need is in the bottom of the last bag you look in.

    Have a great trip; we're praying for you!
