Sorry for the long silence. We have been very busy and still have not had high speed internet. Thanks to my parents I can post this picture (sorry for the large size) and a brief update.

Just wanted to let you know that after a very long and frustrating ordeal with Aer Lingus (NEVER TAKE THEM!!), we arrived safely and soudly in Chicago and are now back home in Indiana. And I will let our British friends know that it is VERY HOT here!! I was shocked when we arrived that all I had to do to sweat was stand still. And it has only gotten hotter and so, so muggy! Yep, it's August.

I will have to let you know about our trip home later.

Thank you to everyone who has been thinking of and praying for us. We still need you thoughts and prayers. We are keeping busy and I am having a bit of culture shock.

We will have high speed internet again hopefully tonight, so I will try to post more regularly again. I am also thinking of starting a new blog. American life from the perspective of a repat. Any ideas for a name? :)

So glad you made it home! Can't believe you are back here... it MUST be a bit of culture shock for you. Great idea for a new blog!

Hope you get settled well without too much kerfuffle! The new blog would be great for those getting readjusted. Best of luck to you!!

Welcome back to North America! I'd suggest "Notes From a Big Country" for a new blog title, but Bill Bryson already took it! You could try something like "Back in the Colonies" or something to indicate that you're repatting from Britain.

Reading about your adventure has left me exhausted. Yet you look so good in your picture when you arrived. I was praying for you. Please keep us updated.

I must say that the picture of when we arrived was when we actually arrived in Indiana. That was the day after we arrived in Chicago. So we had time to freshen up. ;)
