We made it!

We made it to Jordan!!! This post will be quick as we are about to go to a reception where King Abdullah will be at....:)

Our flight was long....but quite pleasant. And we have Jackson to thank for that. He did his famous "Kung Fu Panda" dance for the Royal Jordanian ticket counter and we got an upgrade on our flight. He slept for most of the flight so he was ready to go when we landed. We hopped on some buses and headed to the Kings Academy where we are staying (to read more about it you can google it. it's a really amazing school). As soon as we pulled in Jackson asked two things...(1) Can we go to Braums? (2) Is this Tulsa?

We had a late dinner and explored the campus then crashed. All three of us woke up about 2:30 a.m. (6:30 p.m) Oklahoma time and finally fell back asleep about 4:30. We had an early breakfast and are awaiting the arrival of the King who will speak to the students here at the Academy.

We just secured a car to take us to Petra early tomorrow and then into Amman Tuesday. We leave early Wednesday morning for Spain. I feel very blessed to be here and am just amazed at everything I am seeing.

I lost our camera so there are no pictures right now. :( We think it may be on the bus so we are hoping that it shows up soon.

Will post again soon!
Much love,
Lee Anne
