Leaving on a jet plane

We managed to get through graduation on Wednesday evening and the time at the Wailing Wall without too many tears. While Tim headed to bed around 1 a.m. and Annie fell asleep on the couch, Kaleb and I stayed up til 2:30 a.m. when the senior girls arrived home from their party. We were all up again at 5 a.m. to see off several students in two packed vans and a lorry for all the luggage. Both Tim and I managed a few more hours of sleep throughout the day but we were still saying good byes to a few students who lingered around. Now, we have accomplished most tasks necessary to leave ourselves and the ones that didn't get done will have to wait until we come back in August.

I'm just waiting for the last load in the drier and then we all need to crash for the night since the alarm goes off at 4:45 a.m. to catch our ride to the airport.

I don't expect to post much over the next few days as we have 25 hours of transit and a few days of jetlag after that. Thanks for everyone's prayers for a safe trip - pray that the HK airport is back to normal after delays and cancellations yesterday due to bad weather. See you all soon!!
