Meet Tate....a delayed post!:)

Has is really been 7 weeks since we boarded a plane to Ethiopia?  Have we really been a family of three for a little over 6 weeks?  Has it really been almost 2 weeks since we returned home from a 5 week from a trip of a lifetime?  The answer is yes.

And I will say that since we got home 2 weeks ago we have laughed and laughed and laughed and we have played and played and played. 
What we have not done is folded one piece of laundry, gone through souvenirs, and, obviously, blogged.

I want to tell you all how amazing this time has been.  We were so thankful that we were able to spend 5 weeks in Ethiopia.  We truly feel like we were able to fully experience the culture and the time we spent with Tate bonding was something that has been such a gift. More on the trip late but without further delay, I would like to introduce you to Tate Engida Plumb!








Yes, he is as much fun as he looks.
