The good, fun, happy news is that the children and I have tickets to go to Jenna's wedding in Florida the last week of April! We heard about an airline that has really cheap, direct flights Greensboro-Sanford, so we're going! We'll leave Will behind to a few quiet days of actually getting something done.
The complicated, frustrating, but also good news is that we're working on tickets to Ukraine. Want to hear why I was seeing tickets in my sleep last night? Keep reading. Here are the options that we're looking at now:
- Really cheap tickets to Kiev on May 1 or 5, with a Christian travel agency. That leaves us in Kiev, though, which is still an overnight train trip from where we want to end up.
- That agency could also get us tickets to the international airport that is closest to the Sobies (our friends of friends, who are going to help us), but they're more expensive and involve an overnight in Vienna.
- Really expensive tickets, bought online, going to that international airport.
- The first tickets I mentioned, plus buying the last leg on our own through a Ukrainian travel agency, having those tickets delivered to Pasha's cousin in Kiev, and asking him to bring them to us at the airport in Kiev. That would actually land us in Zaporozhya (there's a domestic airport there), if it works!
I wrote a prayer request yesterday asking that we'd be able to get good travel dates. Please pray for all these details!
