Tonight is our last night in Kigali. We all have confirmed tickets on the 4 o'clock flight to Ethiopia. If we can get Grace's TB test done first thing Tuesday morning we should be able to fly out on Friday as planned. If this happens, we arrive home around 6:3opm on Saturday!

We had a nice day today. The kids played outside, Denise and I packed. We did have a few instances of Grace throwing little fits when she didn't get what she wanted. But we are learning that when she does this or gets a little grabby she is tired. So, off to a nap we went! She slept for 3 hours! At the orphanage they nap from 10-2 and she has yet to get that amount of a nap since last Monday. So, even though she is sleeping well at night she may not be getting enough sleep.

Today, the CEO of AWAA, Brian Lewis, came into Rwanda. We got to visit with him this afternoon then he joined us for dinner. It was nice to get to visit with him. We had a good dinner at the Bourbon Cafe. This was our 3rd time to eat there. They have really good food and it is very nice. Tonight they (the cafe) gave us dessert on the house! This was a fun treat.

That is all for now. We are all snuggled in our beds enjoying our last evening in Rwanda. The trip really has been amazing. There are so many things we will never forget. I will update from Ethiopia tomorrow night or early Tuesday morning.
