We’re off!

After a very busy, actually insane few weeks we are off. But only because of an incredible amount of support from our families and friends, or we couldn’t have managed. We were still stuffing Mike an Peggy’s garage until the moment we left. But we did all sit around the table, after much cajoling, before we raced out the door. A lesson I learned at sixteen in Russia. Sit, pause, relax, think before you leave on a big trip – safe travels and good fortune will follow. 
Naeva is still a little peeved about missing AAAs I think. Amos has no second thoughts.



Six days to go

At last – the long promised blog. We’re so close. Moved out of the house; moved into mom and dads; got the shots, the passports, the homeschool assignments, the six months of diabetes supplies (Amos), the bike tools and malaria meds; now it’s onto packing and saying goodbyes to our amazing friends and family who have helped us get out the door. Last day of school and work is Thursday. Goal: 1 pm ferry to Vancouver this Friday.
