People often ask me how you even begin to prepare to take a family of 5 to Africa for 2 years. And this is my answer.....lists!! I have lists for everything from clothing needs, to toiletries, to schooling materials to food items. Over the last few months I have accumulated lists of things we will need to ship over to Togo. And Friday was our big shopping day. My parents watched the kids so John and I could do our shopping quickly and effeciently......meaning, without 3 little people to wrangle!!
