Last Day to Pack

Tomorrow is travel day. I can't believe it is here already. We've waited so long that it became permanent - kids in Liberia, our family here. Now we're on the brink of another big change. We leave tomorrow at noon from Tampa, go to JFK in New York, arrive in Brussels on Saturday morning. We're staying in Brussels overnight to get a good night's sleep (I hope) and to celebrate my birthday (my reason). We leave Brussels on Sunday at noon and arrive in Liberia about 6 p.m. local time.

Today is going to the bank day, picking up our malaria medication day, finish packing day, checking our list three times day. Oh, and Erin has a checkup this afternoon, too. And I remembered we needed two more copies of Del's employment letter and..... the list goes on.

So rather than use up my limited time thinking about what I have to do, I'm going to wrap this up and get to work! We're bringing the laptop along so we can post pictures and updates while we're gone, hopefully. Thank you for all the prayers during this long wait. We really appreciate the support of all our family and friends.

You thought this day would never get here! Now it's READY SET GO! It's probably a little crazy at your house, yes, I bet even at your house it will be a bit crazy. So much to do! Pack, shop, clean, check the list, check it again.
This weekend Marcus' will be home from MSOE and we will celebrate his 19th "homecoming". He arrived Oct 30th 1989. Wow, where does the time go.
God Bless, have a safe journey! Anxious to see more pictures! Love to you all!
