14 Days & Counting!

Hard to believe we fly out of Seattle on January 10th!  We made a quick (8 hour drive:) trip down to Eugene and back to visit all of Annette's family for Christmas.  We were there just two days but had a wonderful time!  The kids had a blast playing with all of their cousins and we relished the big family gathering for Christmas Eve & Christmas Day.  We also got to visit Annette's home church Emmaus Lutheran, which was very special. 

Unfortunately, all the cousins (including our 3) came down with a bug, which made the drive home...interesting.  But I've learned (at least during the day) I can get quite a bit done at home with three kids laying on the couch all day:)!  Night time, seems to be another story.

Annette's Dad came to visit before Christmas and we put him to work, he & Mike started moving some of our heavier items to storage.  We hope to finish moving the rest of our furniture out by Monday, then clean the carpets, and get the house ready for our tenants to move in on the 4th.  Oh & the fun part!  Figuring out what we can fit in our suitcases!

We'll spend our last week here visiting and saying good by to close friends.  After a year of planning for this journey we are excited for the final weeks in our home town and looking forward to arriving and exploring our new town of Matagalpa!

We wish you all a safe and joy filled New Year!

Annette, Mike, Mackenzie, Evan & Kai
