Packing up

Since we learned 5 weeks ago that we would be invited to serve in the Kingdom of Tonga, we have been making a zillion decisions--the house, possessions, packing. Now it's one more week. We have a pile of things to pack and are wondering if it will all be able to go. We've spent time learning all we can about Tonga and following a couple of blogs of current volunteers. (Very helpful!) Been working on learning a few Tongan phrases and words that the Peace Corps sent us. Some nervousness, many questions, much excitement!

We're counting down....

Only a few days left until we fly to LA. We're in Group 76, and we've found several blogs from Group 75. THANKS! You've given us packing lists, and a good feel for what we might expect. It's been a huge help.
Our house is getting very empty as we load the storage unit. Many friends and family have given us support and help and we couldn't have done this without them.
