We have safely arrived in Atlanta (well, just outside in Sharpsburg) for a missions conference. Here is a brief summary of the events so far (more later):
-Annikah got her own seat on the plane due to a cancellation and despite being doped up on Benadryl (she still is a bit sick) she did not sleep at all.. Rather, she found joy at harassing everyone around us (I am pretty sure the guy in front of us will always use protection from now on)
-We are staying with our fab friend Kim Aneed’s family and they are so hospitable including taking us directly from the airport to Chick Fil A for our first (but not last) chicken meal of the week
-saw a guy in a cowboy hat with knives on a holster around his waist shopping at Walmart and then load his bags into his huge pick up truck, gotta love the South!
-taught a class today and had our projector break down (even though we lugged it as a carry on)followed by Annikah falling into a chair. She got her first bleeding black eye- so sad!! Despite it she has been adjusting extremely well- even surprising us!
-Ate so much at a true Southern church potluck that we may have to go buy new pants for the ride home! We also enjoyed good old fashioned, teeth rottin’ sweet tea!
-got to hear awesome stories of people that have been serving overseas for years!
-experienced true Southern Hos-po-ta-lity! (said slowly with the drawl, go ahead do it out loud you know you want to 🙂
More later but for now we are here and enjoying the fellowship.
Rock on with yo Sweet Tea self!
Umm…My grandma said she use to put sweet tea in my bottle. As someone who grew up in the south, I can tell you nothing tastes better with greens, garden veggies, and cornbread than sweet tea! And Poor Anni’s little eye! I am so sorry that happened… Hope ya’ll enjoy the rest of your stay! (and wave to Stone Mountain for me. We use to live about a mile from there).
