our life in 6 bags.

Bill & Jester had a little r&r time at the cabin with Nana & Papa these past few days while Drew and I have been frantically (okay, that's exaggerating a little) running around doing errands and packing our suitcases. I kinda wish I was in Bill's shoes right now. Having Nana look after my every little need would be pretty sweet right about now. My stomach has never been put through this many butterflies at one time and for this amount of time. My dad always says, "you just need to get those butterflies to fly in formation." Realistically this will only happen when I'm on the airplane...after all the good byes have been said, after all our stuff is packed, after all the loose ends have been tied up. Then perhaps those darn butterflies will get it together.

I'm amazed that practically everything we need for the next 2 years all fits in 6 bags. It helps that Drew is a packing expert. You should see how small he can make a t-shirt by rolling it up. You probably would have trouble believing it. I'll admit my suitcase is the biggest and the fullest....all the more reason to be thankful for Drew's incredible packing skills. Women require more stuff than men.

It's also helpful that you don't have to pack all that proactive! Mike's people will talk to your people. I am hoping for a surge of peace for you... once you take off it will all come together.

It's amazing that life can fit into 6 bags when we have so much other stuff around us all the time! I always underpack and then get to the destination with 3 t-shirts and one pair of pants. I sometimes even forget clean undies. Don't forget the undies! I guess YWAM scared overpacking out of me. But, good for you for taking more stuff than the boys, you will be prepared!
