The organizing/sorting/ditching/selling was enough to make me go insane. I will be forever grateful for the blessing of having movers do the heavy work. Thank you, U.S. government!
The kids of course loved the empty weight room and pool. Despite the cooler weather, they took dares to see who could swim the longest in its icy depths - the prize was first pick of seats on our upcoming airplane rides.
Then of course, we were off on an early flight one last beautiful morning from Canberra. We crammed everything in those giant, trusty duffels again and shipped out. The taxi ride itself was a highlight for the kids and they hadn't flown since we arrived, so they could hardly sleep the night before. Will especially loved the limitless movies and video games at each seat. Who needs sleep? Airlines have really stepped it up these days.
