Final Entry - Monday

We have been in downtown Budapest since yesterday morning and have enjoyed our time sight-seeing, trying to teach Daniel to enjoy coffee, taking a lunch cruise on the Danube, walking in the rain, shopping and enjoying time together.  It has been cold and rainy, but the city is still impressive and very beautiful - especially at night with all the buildings lit!  The lunch cruise was a highlight.  Once we were seated in the correct section, we were treated like royalty!

The kids spotted a restaurant that serves American breakfasts, so, at the kid's request, we are headed there for breakfast.  Then it's time to pack up, check out of the hostel and find a cab that will take 5 people and a bunch of luggage to the airport.  After checking in, we will have lunch at the airport and wait to board our 2:35 p.m. flight to the Czech Republic and on to Lisbon.  We are scheduled to arrive at 6:55 p.m. Lisbon time.

For Rod and me, this has been a wonderful, memorable time with the kids.  As their teacher, I am extremely proud not only of their efforts musically, but for who they have become as young adults.  They were kind, friendly, helpful and encouraging to others at the Festival, and have been a joy to be with the entire trip.  Complaining and whining were not to be heard - for which we are all grateful.  As a parent, I am very grateful to have had the opportunity to accompany the kids on their senior trip.  This is not an opportunity that most parents have, and it does not go unappreciated or unnoticed.  It has been a blessing of the Lord to this parent's heart.

God has blessed us every step of the way - and we thank Him for this.  My prayer before the trip was that this would be a great memory for all of the kids - that we would have safety and glorify God in all circumstances.  He has answered my prayer with a resounding YES, and has truly blessed our time together.  As Leah put it - "Everything is just falling into place."  That is GOD!

Thank you so much to all of you that had a part in making this trip to Budapest a reality.  It truly has been a lifetime memory for us all.
