I'm going to go backwards in time a little bit with my pictures. This is "moving day." Our wonderful neighbors came out to say goodbye. We are so blessed to have such great neighbors.

Here is a pic of our van that drove us to O'Hare. The next pic is of us entering O'Hare and of the animals getting checked through customs. Whew...what an ordeal. Everyone was so nice though. It was actually easier traveling with the girls than alone, as we got MUCH better service. We got to cut through both customs lines at O'Hare and Sau Paulo because some sweet ladies felt sorry for the girls. :)

'Oi' do Brasil! We arrived safely Thursday morning at 2:30. The girls and the animals travelled beautifully inspite of a 6 hour delay. Everyone is well today. Andrew endured a bought with food poisoning for several days, but he is now fully recovered. I was solo for the first few days while Andrew recovered...many adventures to report on as I attempted to speak with the locals and drive the stick shift through their curvy and voraciously bumpy roads.

The "Kao Kilati" is the kennel that is taking care of Sir William and Theodore.

The picture with Andrew and the girls is in front of our hotel room. We have a lovely spacious aparment to stay in until the house is ready. Yesterday the girls helped the "maid" clean the sidewalks. The maid, Diana, would spray the walk down with water while the girls would "scrub" with their brooms. I'll have to post pics of that later. :-)
