...and catching my breath. Here are a few photos from O'Hare prior to departure on Tuesday.
And, following, the first photos from Rio:
Annie wrote yesterday that Mack was the only one who slept well on the Tuesday overnight flight, and was also the crabbiest on Wednesday. They were taken directly to school and given a tour by the Director's secretary who, of course, immediately fell in love with Addison (little charmer). There are monkeys in the trees at school! Their new home is amazing and they all slept wonderfully on Wednesday night. Despite the current lack of internet (except at school) and hot water, she write that "all exceeds expectations!"
We miss them loads and are looking forward to more regular and frequent communication -- especially Mom (she was able to talk with both Annie and Mack today!). New normal.
