This is our last night in Kansas City for 6 days. Our flight leaves tomorrow morning at 9:30, we'll arrive in Atlanta at 12:30, we leave Atlanta at 3:30, and we'll arrive in Moscow at 10:30 Sunday morning (1:30 A.M. our time). We have all our bags packed except for last-minute items, and all the arrangements for the boys have been made. As I sit here listening to the "rockets red glare, the bombs bursting in air," I can't help but feel proud to be an American. We live in such a wonderful country, and I hope we remember all the sacrifices that people made to help make our country as wonderful as it is.
I hope you all have had a glorious 4th of July, and please pray for us as we travel again. Pray for safe travel, a successful court hearing, and safe travel home. We don't know what we'll be doing each day except for court on Wednesday at 10:00. We'll be writing posts while we're gone to let all of you know how we're doing and what's going on. We love you.
