You Know You're __ when __

You know you are raising a 'missionary kid' (MK) when your kids:

... think a snow angel is something like Frosty the Snowman.

... get excited about a library.

... see it's 30 degrees out and still can't be bothered to put on socks and shoes.

... always miss their friends, no matter where you live.

... make up a foreign language that only stuffed animals speak.

... see it's 30 degrees out and skip out the door without a coat (and then scream).

... think a 10-hr airline flight is normal.

... fight over which suitcase they get this time and know how to pack and unpack themselves.

... can't tell the difference between a long trip and a move.

Scary but true: Driving home from our 10-day Oregon trip last week, it became clear that Anna truly believed we were about to pull into our house in Congo. Her main concern: The toys made it alright. The simplicity of being FOUR.

Hey Kim!
I'm not sure if you remember me, but I'm Heather's daughter *Allie*!
I hope you can follow my blog sometime,

Your kids sound so cute! I don't think I could ever ride an airplane for ten hours. The longest plane ride that I've been on is a five hour ride down to Florida, yeah that was really hard for me (i don't like to ride in planes, lol)!
Talk (or comment) to you later!

I will keep you guys in my prayers as the kids navigate themselves through the strange customs in the states. I pray your time here is a blessing to you all!
