Well, it looks like it's just about that time. Time for us to be making our way across the pond to our new life awaiting us in Germany! We've had such a wonderful time at home in NC these past 2 weeks. It was nice to have some down time to visit with friends and family and basically regroup from all the moving. Today, in about an hour actually, we begin our 7 hour drive up to Baltimore to catch our flight to Germany! I am looking forward to this little road trip, believe it or not. Mom and Dad were nice enough to volunteer for the job...as if they had a choice since we're car-less. I'm hoping to get a little sleep (since I'm sure I won't sleep much on the 10 hour flight that begins in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow) and to spend a little more time with my parents. I really am going to miss them. Even though I am not looking forward to saying the "see ya laters" tonight when we arrive at the airport because I'm sure that will be when the tears make their appearance...but I am excited to finally start our adventure! It was just a mere 3 months ago when D came home with the news of our move to Europe. Those 3 months have FLOWN by and now there is no turning back! Off to Germany we go!! Please continue to pray for us as we travel, submerge ourselves in Germany, and adjust to our new life abroad! We are STOKED to say the least!
Auf Wiedersehen, America!! Until we meet again.
