They're here!

The packers are here... putting things in boxes, molding plastic bubbles around our furniture. It's so strange that everything in our life now exists in a few suitcases in the closet.

They are coming back tomorrow to load the truck, because apparently the goal is to leave you in a house full of stuff, with nothing to do for at least one night. We have the laptop and that's about it. I will have access to a computer throughout the move, so you can still count on me to post every so often. That said, don't expect glorious, earth-shattering posts from me these next few days... oh, wait, my posts aren't that great to begin with!

My sweet Love Bug is not doing well with the move. Clearly the boxes everywhere, the tearful goodbyes, and the lack of her normal environment has been stressful. She is taking longer naps (yeah!) but also has an upset stomach (boo!). I'm hoping once we get to the US and have a normal routine for a week or two, she'll adjust. I wonder what she must be thinking about all this. I just hope that having her Mommy and Daddy right there with her is comforting!

Awww she is so sweet!

Good luck the next few days. Hope your Lovebug settles back down for you.

Honey, I hat eto tellyou, but this is as easy as it gets moving iwth children. Yes, she's confused, but she won't remember leaving friends and won't know that she may never meet up with them again - at least for any length of time. Each move with The Boy is harder than the last for us. Treasure this move while you can.

On a good note, not many children can say they have friends all over the world - and they always moke new ones!
