The fateful hour approaches!

Bags are packed and loaded in Paw paw's truck. Extra rooms locked up. Personal items stored away....

In less than 2 hours we will load the cars to head to the airport. Several family will accompany us to see us off.

The anxiety of the wait will be, I'm sure, worse than the trip itself. We're eager, anxious, excited, nervous, worried and thrilled all at once.

Brendan's getting a last minute X-box fix. Heath is watching Selena Gomez videos like a boy moving from his longtime first love. Amarra is reading and running around and posing for photos. Tamara is making last minute calls and I'm just walking around the house in circles looking for any little thing I should have done but forgot.

But soon we'll be on our way and it won't matter what we forgot. If we forgot it we either won't need it or will have to find some way to fix/replace it...and that's when we'll know our adventure has truly begun.

One last thing, we have been extremely touched by all the people who've come by to see us, called, emailed and said how thrilled they are for us. I think there are a lot of people who will live this dream vicariously through us...or hopefully be inspired to take the risk and make an adventure of their own. Thank you all...see you down under!

  1. Hi Guys,

    Wow! The Adventure begins. Have been thinking about you all a lot these last few days and how things were proceeding. Had I looked at your blog earlier, I guess I would have known. ;)
    Hope you find the relaxation you need in Hawaii!
    I'll be a regular follower, as one of your friends who will be living vicariously through you.

    Much love,
