Last Minute Packing

5/20/2007 09:50:00 PM Edit This 6 Comments »

So I think this is really it and we will be getting on that plane tomorrow afternoon. We are doing our last minute packing and trying to make sure each bag doesn't weigh over 50 lbs. Of course these bags have been packed and re-packed over the last 6 weeks so I have to assume most of what we need is in them and if it's not then I'm sure we can do without it.

I just have to say that Mackenzie, my 6 year old niece, was truly great yesterday at her first dance recital. As you can see she was adorable to boot!! I'm glad I got to see it in person Mackenzie and be a part of your "special day!" I'll miss you and Cody to the moon and back.

I also have to say how proud I am of Casey, my oldest nephew, for graduating from high School Friday night with a GPA of 3.8. I wish I could have been there too but I was there in spirit cheering even louder than your Dad. I hope you have some fun this summer before you go off to college and really buckle down (or at least make it to your classes on time.)

Next time you hear from me, I'm sure it will be from Kazakhstan at a little Internet cafe on the Caspian Sea as I munch on horse meat. Hey when in Rome - RIGHT?

I've been trying to calclate where you might be and am hopeful you are in Almaty catching up on your sleep and getting ready for tomorrow and your flight to Aktau. Hope you and your Mom are doing well. It won't be long now. Can't wait to see some pictures of that part of Kaz. How did the Oatmeal travel???:)Take care and I'll be following along. Safe travels.

I have been trying all morning to figure out how to tell you she's beautiful! She is perfect for you and you look like her mom already. It must have been meant to be. I can't wait for you to get her home. Love to you, and mom and Lexie!
