Well, we made it! We are back in New Orleans. It's fun and weird all at the same time. We were welcomed at the airport by 4 cute little boys holding a sign that said "Welcome home Rob and Tina!" as well as my mom, both brothers and sister-in-laws, and our newest nephew Eli! Very fun! We went to church on Sunday morning and were able to see some friends, although due to a really bad rain storm church attendance was really low. We spent Sunday with the family! Today we have just been relaxing, getting laundry done (I can't tell you how nice it is to have an automatic washer and dryer!!! Our clothes have not been this clean and felt this soft in 11 months!) We also took a trip to Walmart. That's enough culture shock in itself. It took us a while to pick out a tooth brush and toothpaste... it's amazing how many options there are!!! Tonight we are helping out with our church's Fisher 5 day club (basically a VBS done in a lower income housing area). I guess we are hiting the ground running. Rob has already talked to his old boss about doing some temp work there.
OK, I know... I know... most of you want to see and hear about the Ireland trip, and I don't blame you, it was amazing. I just need to sit down and take the time to write it out a post the pictures, I just don't want to make the time to do that quite yet. Too much family to see and things to do. But stay tuned... I will try to post them soon!
