For spring break, my family came to LUSAKA!!
Mom, Dad, Maegan and Robert made the trip together to visit for the week with bags loaded with a taste of home and sweet blessings from the rest of the family. There was definitely so much I wanted to show them while they were here and not nearly enough time! Our first stop on the way home from the airport was Chelston for them to meet our newest kids. They were greeted with songs and dancing and very excited kids. We then headed to Tree of Life for them to see where I spend most of my time. They were able to meet so many of my students before we headed home for them to unload.
Tuesday and Wednesday we toured some of our schools, spent time at FCA and played with the kids. Wednesday was a holiday in Lusaka and they worked out at the school helping me with different projects! It was so much fun having them at school with me!
Thursday we went to school early and then saw more of Lusaka before we boarded a plane down to Livingston. Thursday afternoon we visited Victoria Falls. It was absolutely beautiful complete with multiple rainbows.
Friday we went to Chobe National Park in Botswana for a safari. It was a perfect day for a boat ride and safari!
Saturday we enjoyed a hike down to the Boiling Pot and Victoria Falls one last time before we headed back to Lusaka.
After one last afternoon with our kids, we packed them up and headed back to the airport. I could not have asked for a better week with family. I am extremely blessed!!
