We’ve been here in Mindanao, Philippines for almost two months now, and tomorrow we are leaving to go back to Pennsylvania. Our bags are packed and we are ready to go. Our taxi will pick us up tomorrow morning at 5:30 am for the hour and a half drive to Davao International Airport. My mother in law and sister in law are flying up to Manila with us to help with the kids and to get a little more bonding time in. We’ll stay in Manila until Wednesday morning, when our flight for JFK.
We had a great time here with the usual ups and downs. The weather was hot and humid but there was an exceptional amount of rain with some flooding in our area, especially last month. I’ve had lots of time to read, think, and spend time with my family.
Our long flight leaves Wednesday morning and 20-something hours later, we arrive at JFK on Wednesday night. I’m usually good on long flight as long as the baby sleeps for a while. I walk the kids around the aisles to stretch our legs and to pass the time on the plane. I’m just hoping I can make the time change quickly when I’m back.
