And the News is Out

Well, we broke the news to our family this weekend about the big move to Ecuador. The reactions were much better than I anticipated and D and I have the official and complete support of our loved ones to begin on this crazy and huge adventure. A few of my favorite quotes from the weekend:

* With tears in her eyes and a forced smile, Kira responds to our exclamation of excitement with, "Oh, okay. Good." pause, "Why are we excited again?"

*"Do they have guerilla's with guns?" -Mom (actually comment made last week, but I still love it.)

*"Where is this? Africa?" -Grandma

* "Oh! That will be so much fun! Good for you!" -Mammer

* "Oh man! I was hoping you were going to tell us you were pregnant!" -Kira

All in all it was great time being able to finally share our big news. We are so excited for the major change that is taking over our lives right now. I can hardly believe it is happening.
