|Boarding the plane in Wewak|
We had a pretty long layover in Port Moresby, so we ate breakfast at a local hotel and the kids swam for about an hour so there would be less whining and wiggling at the airport.
|Lucy loved playing with PNG kids that could speak English|
We've spent the last two days seeing downtown Sydney and doing fun things with our kids. Here are some pictures of all the fun we've been having...
|First Starbucks in 3 years. I almost cried when I saw it.|
|At the aquarium. Honestly, this wasn't that impressive since we had just come from live snorkeling at the amazing reef in Wewak, but there were big sharks and rays so that was fun.|
|Lucy with a big shark|
|Mia thought this was a castle.|
|which is understandable when this is all she knows as "church"|
|The fam in front of the Opera House|
|Riding the ferry to the zoo|

We were all completely worn out at the end of each day. Having fun is a lot of hard work! But, we are so thankful that we got to do these fun and unique trips with our kids. Some days in the tribe I feel bad for all the things they don't have, so it is such a blessing to get to do extra special outings with them when we get the chance.
Tomorrow the fun ends, though, as we start our journey back to America. We have a 14 hour flight followed by an 8 hour layover, and I think by the time we get home to Mississippi it will be 2 or 3 am. That rough trip plus the jet lag may render me incapable of speaking in full sentences for at least a week, so if you don't hear from me for a few days don't worry. I promise to be in touch when my brain cells are no longer mush.
But is is exciting to think that my next post will be from AMERICA!!!
