06/29/2011 Well, the time had come...after 10 long months of talking about this move...our departure flight was finally here. We've said so many goodbyes and received such kind words & gifts from our family and friends. It is a new beginning for us...we hope to make the best of it! The kids had packed their belongings, plus a few extra things that I've found along the way.:) We and our 14 bags...are heading over 4,000 miles away. Wish us luck!
