Our crate has arrived!

Our crate that we packed a year ago with all of our stuff arrived this past Saturday. We were allotted 500 cubic feet which ended up being 3 huge boxes that contained everything from our beds and sofas to our dishes. It’s so nice to have our own things here, it makes it feel a little more like home. Taylor has discovered lots of her old toys and they are “new” again, so that has been nice. We are so blessed to be able to have brought some of our things from America because if we had to buy it all here, it would have been very expensive. When we move to Gaborone we will still have to buy our appliances and washer/dryer, but that’s nothing compared to what we would have had to spend here if we had not crated.
