Elmer Flies Off!

Elmer was excited to see the airplane and know that we were finally going to be on our way. We had to get on three different airplanes to get to Malawi. It was a long way, and we were on the airplanes for a very long time. 

Lucky for us, the airplane has a little TV to watch. Elmer REALLY wanted to see Frozen. I was amazed he already knew all the words! (I'm guessing he watched it several times during his weekend trips in kindergarten!!) 
 After the movie, Elmer got very tired. He had no problem falling asleep with his eye mask and pillow! 
When you go on a long airplane ride, the stewardess serves you a meal. Elmer helped me smear jelly on the croissant for breakfast. See the little tray? It folds down from the seat in front of you so you can eat!


  1. Dear Ms. Rembert and Elmer, I hope you have fun in Malawi! Love, Whitt

  2. Beckett and Will say, "Goodbye Elmer! We hope you have an awesome trip."

  3. Elmer, we are having such a great time following your adventures!! Your eye mask and tube sock are excellent travel tools. Clearly, your travel companion has many international flights under her belt! We can't wait to see what happens next on your adventure. the Gaines family

  4. Whitt, Will, and Beckett,

    Thanks for keeping up with Elmer! He is missing his friends in kindergarten and SO AM I! I hope you boys are all having a fun summer.

    Ms. Rembert

  5. Gaines Family, I'm looking forward to seeing y'all in Montreat later this summer. Perhaps Elmer will join us! He is an avid rock-hopper and raspberry picker, after all.

    Love, Cousin Jen
