It's done....

What a busy day!

Mom, Sherri, Heather, the girls and I met for breakfast. YUM and organic food too. ::snort::

Heather and Krista grabbed $ and headed out in two directions to run errands for us.

Many of us worked to get the trailer cleared and cleaned.

Mike and the boys took the majority of the rest of the day dealing with dumping, winterizing and storing the trailer.


Heather and Krista took all the younger ones to the lake. What fun. This was WONDERFUL as it allowed me to FOCUS without guilt on "the list" and it gave the kids the chance to make a fun memory and not focus on the trauma that it evidently is to pack. Stacia unpacked as fast as I packed. My goal was to finish shopping and have everything packed before they arrived. I didn't quite make it...but close.

Krista worked on loading A in O and Hank the Cowdog etc on to MP3 players....we'll work on THAT some more in Seattle. I purchased them today.


Sherri, Will, Nate and Heather joined us at Mom's for dinner. Mom made some yummy brisket. We talked with the Realtor for a bit and then enjoyed unwinding and laughing with the kids and family.

Then we weighed suitcases..... (Renee in Misawa....this should give you some idea....13 suitcases...and quite a few carry ons, 7 people...)


The Girls went to their apartment with Arielle and Nolan in tow. The rest of us will bed down here. We packed suitcases into the van. The last load of laundry is in the dryer.....

We're really doing this. ::snort::

Wow! I've been catching up on your blog, and enjoying your gorgeous photos. Now I want to travel out that way! lol Praying for you guys as the move gets closer and closer, It looks like you are making wonderful memories!

praying that all goes well through customs with the suitcases.

LOL - thanks, Renee. I know from being an MK a bit of what to expect at customs. I actually think things have gotten better since traveling to Marcos' Philippines in the 70's and 80's. LOL

We were careful not to bring anything on the "no list"....and anything wrapped is in Ziplock so it can easily be seen etc.

What an undertaking! You're going to need a vacation from your vacation... but you'll be busy getting settled in.

Can't wait to hear what life is like in Misawa,
