Leaving on a Jet Plane

Tonight is our last night in the states.  I’m excited and nervous and completely stressed out.  Are we going to make all of our connecting flights?  Will every single piece of baggage we check get lost?  What if we lose a kid?!

Lauren cried a little when I tucked her in bed tonight.  She doesn’t want to leave.  She’s had such a great time with all the grandmas and grandpas and aunts.  I tried to entice her with promises of new friends and old, but she’s so sensitive and I’m just not sure it helped.

Tomorrow is going to be an early day.  Our flight leaves at 8ish unless we can get a standby spot on the earlier flight.  Then it’ll be over 24 hours before we actually make it to our final destination.  I don’t know how long it’ll be before we have access to the internet, but it’ll be as soon as absolutely possible.  I cannot wait to get back to regular life.  Living out of suitcases and not having a place to call home is really getting to all of us.  See you all on the flip side.

    How exciting for y’all! The family is going to miss you terribly when you are offline. :( I hope you have a great, safe trip and are settled in quickly! I would rather lose a suitcase than a child, I’m sure you will be fine. *hugs*

    Good Luck with the move, the flight, and everything in between. Moving is stressful enough, let alone, moving to another country! Good Luck!

    Well darling it was great to hear that you arrived safely with all children in tow. I do miss all of you tremendously. Tell Lou that Grandma Tonya thinks that she will love Japan and make lots of friends and the best part is that she can share all of that with me by internet, phone, mail and when I come for a visit. Keep us posted as often as possible. Hugs and Kisses to everyone.
