I'm home

It is four in the morning and I am wide awake. I slept to much yesterday and now I think I am going to pay for it. We had the most amazing trip ever. I have been finding it hard to find the words to describe the time that we spent with these amazing people. They treated us like we were family even though we had just met. They accepted us right from the beginning. They shared their best with us, laughed with us, and traveled many miles with us.

We saw so much in the five days in Burkina Faso. We traveled many miles down bumpy dirt roads, squeezed in a land cruiser with the windows down and getting covered in dust, but talking and laughing the whole way.

Journey Mama will be writing about it on her blog and on the LJ Urban blog also. She has a gift with words and will be describing it so well. I suggest you check out her writing. We have a lot of photos that Journey Mama took and some video that we will be putting on the LJ Urban web site also. I will let you know when all of that is up.

It is good to be home and be with my family. I missed my kids so much. I am also so thankful for this opportunity to see this part of the world. It was unlike anything I have ever experienced before and beyond my wildest imagination. I will try to write more soon when my time is not so messed up.
