Time is quickly approaching for our departure. We are extremely busy making plans, gathering supplies and trying ever so hard to learn the Swahili language. We have just a few days left spending Christmas with Heathers family in Michigan and heading out the day after. We then spend 3 weeks in Chicago. Packing, sorting and weighing everything!! We are able to bring 8 suitcases or tubs with 50 lbs each with us on the plane and so every ounce counts!! We are sad to leave but excited for what is ahead.
