Bekkah!!

I woke up a couple times in the night to text Steve and see if there was news.  Finally, there was.  He was given an interview at 3:00 PM, 6:00 AM our time.  I had already prepped him, so I didn't plan to wake up--but then did, mysteriously, right at 6:00.

At 7:00 he just texted me to say "Bekkah!"  This is a very useful Amharic word that means finished and enough all in one.  So it's official!--we're finished.  The visas will be ready for pick up tomorrow morning, and we hope to get the group a flight out tomorrow.  I asked if the girls understood, and Steve said they seemed "giddy."

Thanks, everybody!

Fabulous! I don't know if you got my e-mail to your mac.com address -- let me know if you need to borrow Halloween costumes . . what an odd day to enter U.S. culture . . . Maybe you are going to nest and not go out -- either way, it's going to be fun for your family. Kathleen
