It is Monday...we leave for Seattle on Wednesday (around noon)...we leave for Ethiopia on Saturday morning...HOLY COW!!!

COULD THIS REALLY BE HAPPENING??? I feel like there is so much to do, like scrub the shower, vacuum and steam clean the car, wash the car, vacuum the house again, buy dog food (not sure how any of this relates to going to Ethiopia, but they are things I have to do for some reason).

Nathaniel's bag is completely packed. Our donations bag is about 2/3 packed. We have room for our friends who are sending their little girl a care package and my mom who has some donations.

Tonight we are working on our bag for ET and our bag for Seattle. We are packing separately for Seattle (hopefully) so we are more organized.

Ok, that's all for now. Thanks for listening to me ramble. :-)

We feel the same! Our house is in shambles because of all the stuff we "had to do" before we leave. NOBODY'S bags are packed. Yikes!

See you Saturday!

I can just hear the excitement in your post. I'm excited for you too! I'll be stalking your blog when you're gone. I can't wait to see pictures of the new family!

With Love,
