All Good Things Come To An End

Alas, Team Ten's adventures came to an end last Saturday, but not before a mini adventure took place. We have friends that live out Kansas way, and we haven't seen them in what seems like forever. So, when it was time to return our 4 extra treasures, we would be taking them to meet their parents at the airport ...out Kansas way. We were excited that we could combine the trip and get to spend time with our firends! As Friday afternoon rolled around, we had the van packed, the kids loaded and we were off on our weekend adventure. The J~crew was scheduled to arrive at the airport around 10pm Friday night. Our plan was to take all the kiddos (making a total of 16 at one house) out to our friends where we would have supper and let the kids play. At the appropriate time, we would all go to the airport to welcome home the J~ crew and their precious baby girls... and to return the 4 precious treasures they loaned us for two weeks. As the story continues,  we are driving, and we are about half way to KS when we get text messages that the plane has landed at the first entry into the U.S.. Team Ten is cheering, and we are saying a prayer of thanksgiving for safe travel, and for two precious babies who are now American Citizens!  Then, about 30min later, another text arrives, the J~ crew will not make their connecting flight. After a series of text messages and phone calls, we determine that we will continue as planned except that the 4 precious treasures will remain overnight with us at the hotel, and we will then meet their family at the airport at 10 am Saturday instead of 10pm Friday. No problems there;however, we have to break the news that they won't get to see momma and sissies until the next day. I was a bit worried about the kids reactions...needlessly... the kiddos rolled with it (as they have for the entire two weeks) and their "upset" was offset by the fact that they could sleep at a hotel.

We enjoyed our visit with our friends, and Princess Mia got to hug, play and visit with her beloved "A". Only wish we could have had more time there. We are making plans for the girls to get special time together this summer.
Our weekend turned into a truly remarkable adventure, and we are so grateful for the memories and special bond we made as team ten! We already miss the kiddos and the fun...
