Springfield Airport October 4, 2007

Well, we are sitting in the Springfield airport, waiting for our flight. Dad, Mom and the kids dropped us off about 20 minutes ago. I wonder if it has penetrated the minds of the little kiddos that mom and dad are off, and won't be back for awhile. Though they know what we've been telling them for weeks, I'm not sure they really understand. I made them each a paper chain with the number of days we will be gone. They are excited that each morning they can tear a link off of their chain. They are also looking forward to going to McDonald's, e-i-e-i-o, as LiAnne sings.

We have 48 minutes to change terminals and planes in Chicago. We then board the plans to Hong Kong, 15 1/2 hour flight. Please be praying for us as we fly, and for Taylor and LiAnne as they stay behind.

I am excited to be able to follow your journey! I assume that since you are meeting Janelle on Mon China time it will actually be Sun night here in the US?? Just want you to know that we will be praying for you all!
