It’s Monday night and Amy and I at this point can’t quite see straight, the last few weeks have taken their toll on us with all the gazillion “to-do” lists scattered throughout the house. Between cleaning out the house, loading up the PODS, end-of-school events (a lot of partying for the kids), getting rid of a car, insurance, packing clothes, cell phones, laptops, etc., etc. we are just tired and at the same time giddy with anticipation. We see the finish line and it’s tomorrow!! No matter what happens at this point, tomorrow afternoon we are getting on a plane to Düsseldorf, Germany! One backpack and one carry on each; Germany here we come!! Our blog has kind of taken a back seat to other more immediate details but we hope to start forming it more completely as we begin our travels. Thank you everyone for all of your love, support and prayers that you have been sending our way, we are blessed to have such a great and strong network of family and friends.
