I had told many of you that we had no place to stay in England. We figured it would be fine and we could "wing it" like we often do. It didn't bother me to tell family and friends this bit of information because most people know us well enough to think, "I could never do that but Mark and Dina are a little crazy anyway."
Well, let me tell you, it was NOT so funny to stand in front of the immigration officer who raised her eyebrows and proclaimed- "You've come to England with 5 children and you are telling me you've got no place to stay?!"
My heart was beating out of my chest and I thought for a moment we would be back on the next plane to the good old US of A. Mark's lobbying skills came in handy and he had won her over in a few minutes though it felt like hours!
There is SO much to tell and not much time since we are barely keeping our heads above water. More later...
