Last post from this side of the pond...

This will most likely be my last post from my little house here in Florida. Today is our last day, our flight leaves tomorrow morning at 11am. We fly to Newark, NJ and have a 7 hour layover before our flight leaves for Belfast, Northern Ireland at 9pm. The good news is that my Aunt and Uncle and cousins are going to come meet us at the airport to spend that layover time with us! Isn't that so nice of them? It will make the day so much better! I'm excited because Elijah will finally get to meet and play with his cousin Kyle. I think Elijah will just love Kyle.

My bags are almost packed. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. And I think everything is going to fit! That is amazing!

Thank you to those of you who have been helping us this week. We couldn't have done it without you!

Mom, you've been doing a lot, watching Elijah and cleaning the house. Thanks for your encouragement and prayers. Thanks for treating me to breakfast, just the two of us!

Andrew and Dave, thanks for helping Geoff with the yard work.

Sherri, you were a huge help in keeping me focused, sorting stuff and packing. I appreciated your taking the time to come up two days in a row!

Kelly, thanks for watching Elijah all day Monday so we could get things done. That was a big help! Elijah always has a good time with your kids. Thanks for dinner that night too!

Mrs. Chiaro, you made Geoff a happy man with that peach pie you sent up with Sherri yesterday! =)

I guess I need to get back to work! Oh, here's some pictuers first.

New Jammies!

We are looking forward to spending the day with you as well! I plan to take lots of photos of Elijah and Kyle - they will love each other!

See you tomorrow!

I know we haven't seen each other in years....
but we had planned to! And now you're leaving?! what the heck?! I was so looking forward to our kid(s) going to sea world together, etc! bummmmmmmer!

I'm excited for you though! I can't believe that you're leaving, TOMORROW! It just doesn't seem right! That went all to fast!

I'm so glad you have family and friends that were able and willing/wanting to help you out during this incredibly fast, moving, time!

And that sweet one on one time with your Mom, that must of been wonderful!

Anyway, we'll be prayin' for you! Do stay in touch!
