"Today we went to the farewell ceremony at the care center. Aynalem looked esp. beautiful in her traditional Ethiopian dress. It was a very touching ceremony.... The nannies said goodbye to all of the children and each set of parents had a chance to share about their experience in Ethiopia and thank the Holt staff. We did some shopping this afternoon which was fun =) Tomorrow is our last day here and we will spend it packing and hanging around the hotel. Our flight leaves Ethiopia at 10:25 pm tomorrow which is 12:25 pm in AZ. If we make all our flights we will arrive home to PHX at 1:15 pm on Friday =) It's bittersweet to say goodbye but we are ready to get home. Can't wait to see everyone, esp. Eli who we miss like crazy!!!"
