From Dallas. .  .

. . . to Rome!

It is so small thing getting our whole family over here!
     We offered a 5 euro prize for the daughter or son who displayed the “best attitude” during the traveling.  Clare and Mary tied, both offering countless times to take the baby, carry my bags, walk Annie to the bathroom, etc.  They also both smiled and handled fatigue and so little sleep like champs.  We are so grateful to them both!  But as you can imagine, Jacob and Leigh were not exactly terrors–what sweet, cooperative children.  Even Annie was amazing.  They each handled their challenges with poise.  Thank you, Lord, for this family!
