We are in the home stretch here! Packing boxes. Making drop off runs at Miser's. Pawning off stuff on unsuspecting friends. And trying to eat up all the food in the house and the garden. (Danny has deemed every meal from here on out to be served over greens including a healthy sprinkling of frozen pecans and vital wheat gluten.) Who knew the garden, basement freezer and baking cabinet would be so difficult to get through?
We'll keep writing as our travel date grows nearer. First stop is a midwest roadtrip to say farewell to family in Madison, Chicago, and Ohio (and maybe Kentucky if we really feel adventurous!) Before we throw the kids into a whole new culture and language we thought it would be nice to tank up on Grandma Mary's oatmeal cookies and swim in Lake Michigan. We hit the road in less than three weeks.
