Packing and more packing

I haven't be able to get my daily dose of ya'll blogs yet! I'll have some catching up to do once we're back in Northern Ireland.

I've been sorting and packing all day today! We're almost done! Now the question is...

...how to pack the baby?

Sherri came over to say goodbye today and this was her idea.
I'd say he's ready to go! What do ya think?

I hate this part... the night before a move or trip with big goodbyes my heart starts thumping when i think of having to say goodbye and my stomach gets all jittery. Not a nice feeling at all! It's hard to leave behind the people you love! But i'm so thankful for the time we've had and memories we've made.

Well, i'd better go finish packing. We leave the house tomorrow around 2pm. Fly to Newark and then on to Belfast. We'll arive in Belfast on Thursday morning. Bye for now. Happy St Patricks Day!

Hahaha! Ethan looks perplexed, as if to say, "Aunt Sherri, why, oh why would you do this to me? After we've all been through! You're sticking me in a bag?" Oh, we'll miss you so much! Love you guys!

Bittersweet, isn't it? To be able to introduce your youngest to Geoff's side of the family...but leaving behind the dear ones here. I don't envy you the trip but what an awesome journey your family is on! Awesome because it is being directed by the Lord.

Love to all of you!

Hi Melissa, hope all goes well with your travelling back here to N.I. Am sure it will be hard to say good bye to family and freinds in the states.

I second Becky on the bittersweet part! It must be hard!! I bet your husbands family will be thrilled to hold Ethan and to meet him!! Praying for a safe trip for you all and that Ethan would do well on that long plane ride. See you in Ireland!!! :-)
