Our Greece Trip

There was even a swing for Arianna.

Kiss for dada.

Our time in Greece was well spent.  We left the house right on time and arrived at the airport at around 9:30 pm.  We left a little late from Barcelona, but that was okay with us because we had a 4 hour layer waiting for us in Athens.  The kids all slept good for the flight and we found a quiet corner in the airport in Athens to sleep before catching our flight for Corfu.  We arrived at the hotel at about 11 in the afternoon.  After eating lunch at the hotel the whole family enjoyed a few hours of sleep, before waking right at supper time.  We enjoyed eating supper with some of our missionary friends who had arrived.  The conference did not start until Monday night, so during the day on Monday we went swimming with the kids.  The services every evening where great, and I enjoyed learning some new songs in English as well.  In the mornings while Angie and I had classes and share sessions, the kids had Vacation Bible School.  In the afternoons we did all kinds of fun things together.  We had a wonderful time.  I am already looking forward to next year.  We left Friday morning and flew to Athens and then to Madrid and then Barcelona.  We had a funny moment in Athens when the security guard wanted us to take the blanket away from Arianna who had just woke up.  He wanted to pass it through the x-ray.  It took a little coaxing but finally she gave it up without any tears.  We made it home at about 1:30 am.  I defintely think that next year we will try to fly out of Toulouse.  Enjoy some pictures and the video below as well.  Today is the 10th anniversary of the attacks on September 11th.  We were living in Corsicana and I was about to leave the house for work when we received a call telling us to watch the television.  I remeber being shocked and having the radio on all day.  Thinking that there could be 20,000 people in those towers was just shocking.  Our prayers continue for those who lost family and friends that day and in the war against terrorism.  God bless, JASON
