We've had to get serious about packing this weekend. We leave for Zambia, Africa next week (read about our trip here)! There are so many details to take care of still but we are making good progress.
Because our flight tickets are special "missionary" tickets, we are allowed to check three 50 lb bags per person at no charge. That's 300 lbs for us together! We've gotten lots of donations of kids clothing, school uniforms, school supplies and Bibles so they are mostly filled up. Just about everything we are taking we are leaving there as donations.
I am SOOOO excited about this trip! I can't wait to get going!

These are all the bags.
They look smaller in the photo than in real life.

And see, I sewed something practical too.
A pouch that you can tuck into your pants with the loops secured to your belt (we're to have our passport on us at all times).

One thing I am definitely looking forward to: daytime temps of 75 degrees in Zambia (vs. 102 that it is here right now).

Hope everyone is having a great weekend! Hopefully, I'll get to post once more before we leave.
