Excitement and Jet-lag

We're here in Phnom Penh safe and sound, and the kids even managed to sleep until 5:30am! We tried skyping with the family, but they’re not used to this yet, and nobody is leaving the skype logged-on. After much dubbed-over cartoon watching and snacking, we are ready to head out to the kids' new school to meet everyone, and then over to the office, and then on to a realtor. Phew! It's going to be an exhausting day. Luckily Friday, though, so after all this we're going to have a weekend to relax.
We’ll give the skype another shot in 12 hours or so, and will have more news to report by then.
The kids are really thrilled to be here. Yoshi is happy to have seen a tuk-tuk first hand, and Ernest has taken me aside to tell me how happy he is that we are doing this together. He is such a sweet, thoughtful boy. Tika and Puck are rambunctious as ever-- although with their energy levels rising and collapsing, getting over jet lag will be hardest for them, I think.
OK-- we're off to meet our driver and head to school! I'm excited for the kids!
