Getting home has been challenging as the excitement fades quickly and normal life begins to resume. The allure of what we missed is overpowered by the routines of everyday living. However, already there are spoken memories and laughter at the many different moments together over 2 months traveling.
The entire experience will hopefully leave our 3 sons more open to difference, more appreciative of culture, more aware of history, and more accepting of others. After all, the trip was part of the 20 year plan to develop young men who contribute to society, positively impact their community, and make the world a better place for all who inhabit it.
