A couple things I learned the last few days:
1. Moving a family to another country is hard (and I'm not even there yet!). There are a lot of preparations and a lot of luggage. 6 checked bags (including the pack n play), 3 backpacks, 1 laptop, and another bag for Siciliy's and Olivia's toys...I might never move back from Honduras just to avoid moving all the stuff. Thankfully we plan to leave a fair amount of things in Honduras whenever we return.
2. I have a lot of clothes. I think I may have only taken about 1/4-1/3 of my shirts...ridiculous. This after a trip to Goodwill also.
3. Saying goodbye is difficult, even when you're planning on making it temporary. I love my family in Oregon and it was hard saying goodbye. I kind of got a taste of what Sarah and her family do each time they visit for a few days then have to return for a few months.
4. We have a lot of friends and family that have been extremely generous in supporting us for this trip! Thank you everyone who has helped in one way or another.
We are very excited for the couple weeks in NY and the next year or so in Honduras! Glad you are along for the ride, at least in some vicarious way.
We'll also post some pictures of NY while we are here, but here are a couple pics we took with my family a week before we left for NY.
