Whats Next?

If you have paid any attention to our blog or facebook posts, you know that we are finally headed back to China. We leave Portland on June 7th, and on June 8th at 9:30 PM we arrive in our new home in Chang Sha! We are humbled and excited to be able to do this, and are so grateful for the life we are able to live!
Our next question is why June? Why now tomorrow? Well, we need to close up our life here. To have time to move out, and pack up. To prepare the boys for the move. They seem to be excited about it, but reality is hitting them, and they need the time.
So we will use the next 7 weeks to do that. To sort through our stuff, to pack on the basic necessities. We are determined to only bring 2 bags each...To say good bye to our life and new friends here.
We also have to shop. We have a HUGE list of things we need to buy before we go. As modern as China is becoming, there are many things we can't buy there. Things like deodorant, vanilla, baking powder, and jelly beans! Clothes for us, and pants without orange designs on them for Tegan. Birthday candles, and children's motrin. The list goes on and on. We are having fun just buying, and not really worrying about the final total! We never do anything like that, and its nice to be able to do that!
So thanks for your support and help, we cant do this without all of you!

So happy to hear that you are "almost" on your way home! Glad we will still be able to stay in touch and see your kids grow thanks to technology :) God bless you guys as you make preparations to leave!
