Off to Greece

Tomorrow morning my family and I ship out for Athens, Greece. It's been a really busy end of the semester trying to wrap up all my courses and plan for a 2.5 month excursion overseas. Without Becky's organizational skills, there's no way we would have made it. We've got all the bags packed up and are ready for our early morning flight out of Little Rock. Some friends will be staying in our place over the summer.

On Tuesday morning we'll be flying into Athens along with 32 Harding students, and we'll make our new home in Porto Rafti which is about an hour outside of Athens. Harding owns a hotel there called the Artemis. It has a pool which the boys will love, and we'll have all our courses in the hotel as well as all our meals. I'll be teaching Speech Communication and the Life of Paul. Becky will be teaching English Composition II. The boys will be teaching Patience 101.

There are three major excursions we'll be taking in addition to travel around Greece: Egypt, a Mediterranean cruise, and Israel. I'll post more about these trips later.

Your prayers will be appreciated as we head out tomorrow. We'll see how the boys do being woken up at 3 am. wink
