(Rich) We are getting close, 1 week til blast off. Packing light is challenging. Haley has packed and repacked but we are at a place now where her backpack closes and she can carry what she has, which appears to me to be mostly toiletries, makeup, and school supplies. We have talked Jack out of bringing Lego's but the razor scooter is still a must, so somehow it will come. If it's too heavy or can't run the cobble stones it will make a nice gift to some kid we happen upon. It seems I have a whole bag of electronics(some of which I don't know how to use) with endless bags of chargers, cords, and adapters(modern travel). We've canceled every service, magazine, unsubscribed emails, cats are arranged for, house set, business taken care of, school in place, and still the endless list seems to grow with each day closer. Our kids think we are losing our minds and I think maybe they are right. I wonder how long after we leave it will take to let go and engage fully in the experience?
