We’ve been talking for a year & a half about our move to Spain so it is hard to believe that we are actually here now!
“We’re going WHERE today?”
God did His good work & continued to confirm to me that this is where He wants us even in our travels yesterday:
-We showed up at the airport with 12 checked bags, 7 carry-ons/personal items, 2 carseats, & a stroller. The man at the check-in desk asked if we had weighed the bags & when we said that we had, he said he would take our word so we didn’t have to unload all the carts! It saved us so much time!
-The flight was mostly smooth, which was a huge answer to prayer, because we had encountered some turbulence on our departure from Portland that scared Ezra (& let’s be honest, me) pretty bad.
-At the London Heathrow airport, we stopped to ask clarification on where we needed to go & the man directed us to the “fast track” because we had a baby! We passed hundreds of people waiting in line & were through all the security checks in about 20 minutes or less (it usually takes a good hour or more)!! This was a huge blessing as both our kids were tired & standing in line would not have been easy!
-All our baggage arrived except for Ezra’s carseat, but one of the men who came to pick us up happened to have a van that has a built in car seat! It’s even more amazing when you think about the fact that he doesn’t have kids young enough to need a car seat!
The kids waiting in the baggage claim area while Micah sorted out the delayed carseat mess. Our kids were such troopers & did such a good job!
