We Made It!!

So after 13 hours on the plane with only a couple hours of sleep, we finally touched down in Ethiopia!! We were all very tired but excited to finally be here. The first stop on our agenda was to a feeding program at one of the orphanages. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned..which is exactly what we were told to expect. We spent 5 hours at the ET airport while they dug through each and every one of our 60+ pieces of luggage. We went ahead and checked into our guest house. The kids On the street were so excited to see us. Now, they wait outside of the guest house gates for us to come out. They LOVE to play with the iPad and to play soccer with the guys. We turned in early since we had only had about 5 hours of sleep in 2 days.

This morning (Saturday) we headed out and visited 2 orphanages. We helped at a community feeding program that one of the orphanages holds and played with the kids. We all have toys and candy in our backpacks and it doesn't take long for the kids to figure that out!!they aren't at all bashful to ask for some! We are now hanging out at the guest house getting ready to head out to dinner. I can't wait to be able to post pics from the trip!!
