The Moving Process Continues

We came into the US with 7 suitcases.  We’re leaving with a little more.  We’ll take back 6 suitcases.  That sounds better, right?  Not exactly.  We’re also shipping 6 plastic tubs on a boat.

Shipping Tubs

It’s scheduled to arrive there on August 16 – just 10 days after we are.  But wait; there’s more.  We’re also mailing books and DVDs in a book bag via the US Postal Service.  So many people have asked me what made the difference, why we had so much more, what is in the 6 tubs.  There are a lot of children’s ministry supplies, extra clothes, Grace’s toys, some kitchen supplies and a few extra things.  You’d be surprised how much you can collect in a year!

Yesterday, the crate was filled and we waited for them to pick it up.


Mike looked a little like Handy Manny while getting the crate completed.

When it was picked up, I told Mike that it went pretty easily.  Then I remembered all the work it took to get to that point.  My observation then became, “After all the hard work to get to this point, that went easily.”
