The Suitcase is OUT!

Bre has taken her suitcase out.

Pray for her....she is going to be on an incredibly TIGHT schedule to clear customs, buy her train pass, take a train to Tokyo Station and hit the Bullet Train to Hachinohe by 8:00 p.m. (last train of the night).

Ryu and Kim (I LOVE THESE FOLKS) are on standby. If she misses the Shinkansen (bullet train) she'll call them, they'll bring her home to spend the night with them, and put her on the Shinkansen from a station near their home on Christmas morning. I'm MUCH more at peace knowing she has a backup that's better than "sleeping at the Tokyo station".

The other kids will spend the night at a hotel in the Haneda Airport and then fly out the next a.m. for Misawa - compliments and directed by the USAF. ::snort::

Bre will be home in 1 day (Japan time - 2 days US time)
Krista will be home in 4 days
Jamin and Josiah will be home in 6 days

YEA! And, I hope you update us to let us know that she made all of the connections. How are you keeping track of the kids while they travel? Laptop?

I'll be praying that all the kids have safe travels, no snags with customs, without flight delays and make all connecting flights. Am I missing anything? :)

Praying for all of your kids as they travel. My heart can so relate to your joy at having them with you. ~smile~

So glad we have the Lord.... love/prayers -- Mom T.
