Charleston Adventures

We have been in the USA for two weeks now, and time is already flying by! 

Since we have arrived, we have been adjusting to the new time zone, braving the cold weather temperatures, shopping at yard sales to stock up on winter clothes, dealing with our clingy two-year-old Jessie who is struggling with all the new, enjoying lots of warm bubble baths and yummy American food, and spending precious time with family.

We are currently staying at my parent's home in Rock Hill, South Carolina (which is located near Charlotte, North Carolina), but last week we took a trip to beautiful Charleston, South Carolina for a few days to rest and visit my sister who lives there.

Here are a few photos from our Charleston adventures!

The amazing Angel oak tree in Charleston.

At Sullivan's Island!

We saw elaborate Christmas lights at a park in Charleston.

We also visited a Fire Museum.

Did I mention that it has been super cold?  We are braving below freezing weather at times.  We left the extreme heat of Brazil and now we are wearing our coats, scarves, gloves and hats.  We are really hoping to see snow this winter.

This is our first of many adventures during our furlough in the USA.
We are extremely thankful for this very special time with family and for a season of rest.
