Safely in Zürich
Just a note to say we were safely carried through the three flights yesterday and today to arrive in Zürich, Switzerland, to take up residence! All three flights were slightly delayed, so that worked out just fine. We drove straight from the last of the four airports to our new rental home and met two ladies to receive the keys and sign the check-in inventory of property and damage. Tomorrow the household goods van should arrive to deliver everything. The driver actually stopped by today to see where the house was and said he'd see us tomorrow morning. Promising!
We are TIRED! A good night's sleep tonight should hopefully set us up for a long day of work tomorrow getting all the furniture and boxes situated and starting to unpack essentials. We are at a hotel tonight but plan to move into the house tomorrow once we have bedding and towels and such.
It's a beautiful afternoon in Zürich and our hotel room looks out over the lovely blue lake and the hills on the other side. Thanks be to God our Provider, Protector, and Guide (not to mention Redeemer, Creator, and Source of True Hope, Peace and Love).
A funny note on Emily's cough situation (ongoing for the past six months) - Emily hardly coughed while we were in the U.S. this past week, nor while we were flying. She's not coughing now either, here in Switzerland. But on our layover in England this morning, she coughed. Hmmm. Could it be our problems will end very soon with that issue, now that we don't live in the UK anymore?

Glad you made it back safely. I got home too without any problems.
Maybe I napped a bit too much this afternoon, but soon asleep I hope.
I actually went to work this morning after a shower, but didn't last the whole day.
Good luck with the move in.

So glad to hear that all went well for both of my Europe-based children who have traveled far and wide to visit us, and now are back home, and you all to a new country!!! Thank you, God for all answered prayers! Still don't know about my plans, but I am asking God for guidance, whether to come sooner, or just later! Love you so very much...Mom
