Doesn't that sound like a send-off for people going on a cruise? It makes me think of confetti and anchors and boat whistles. I'm not sure if it really fits with African travel. Maybe Hakuna matata. That's the only thing that comes to mind, and it's a good message for me because if "matata" are worries, I'll admit that I'm a bit of a matata-er when it comes to my family and international travel.
This morning I noticed that Lyle had forgotten the triple-A batteries I bought him yesterday. I can't remember what he said he needed them for, but hopefully it's nothing too critical. Like maybe his dental drill.
I see that they did remember to take the anti-malarial meds that were on the counter. If they'd forgotten those, I'd be knee deep in matatas.
Does Lucy look tired? She should; it was 3:30 AM.
But she was her chipper self when it was time to walk out the door.
Someone else insisted on getting up to see them off
and let's just say she was not so chipper.
We miss them already.
