Okay, here it is folks, the last pre-trip blog. I should be cleaning or packing or doing something productive right now, but I can't bring myself to do so. I'm so over all those little details. It has been a good but hectic last couple weeks.
For those of you who didn't know, last weekend was particularly packed. We had my mom, my bro and his gf Kasie, my grandparents, and Mark's parents all in Salt Lake for one last visit before we leave. Of course we were also celebrating my graduation (from Westminster with an MAT, woot!), my birthday, and my papa's one year anniversary. Whew, it was quite the weekend. But so great that everyone could be here to join with us.
Some photos of grad weekend. I kind of felt like a wizard in the costume..
My gramps and I showing off our fancy shoes!
This last week has been filled with packing, cleaning, logistics, and of course our good-byes to everyone. It's funny how easily I take my community for granted, until I get ready to leave and I think about all the people that I want to make sure and see before departure.
Here is our little friend Alexander giving the big motorbike a testride when he came over to say goodbye.
Also, as a sidenote. Anyone with blog experience- help me out. How could I post our itinerary on the side bar of the blog so that people can see where we are? And is there a way to put a tracker of some sort at the top of the blog to keep count of the number of days we have been on the road? Any advice gratefully accepted.
