Well, here we are! Crunch time! Stress level: HIGH

We have quite a bit to do, but in all honesty...we are having fun with the time left! Stephen is playing golf today with his team at work, and tomorrow is his last day of work at the Plano office! Woo hoo!!

This Friday, we have a Karaoke party (everyone is invited) at our place, and a fun pool party on Saturday as well!! Please come out and join us, but like I said before...wear your party pants!!

We leave on Tuesday morning, and the real adventure will begin! Thanks to all that have helped us thus far--we appreciate it! Stay tuned for more to come...

Departure Date: July 31, 2007

Thank you to all that came to the going away party this past Saturday! It was great seeing everyone together in one place! We will, however, try to get everyone together for a barbeque and pool party for one last hurrah in this Texas heat.

Thankfully, everything is starting to fall into place as we make final plans and arrangements here in Dallas. We will be staying in a hotel for a few weeks in Liege until we decide on an apartment. I've made sure the hotel is dog friendly so Katie can have the dogs with her if she wants them. Our French tutor mentioned the phrase "Pet Passport" the other night and Katie hasn't been able to remove it from her head. Originally, we weren't going to take the dogs since we are hoping to do a lot of traveling, but we've learned that most European cities are extremely dog friendly. Which, if I've assumed correctly, means we'll be taking them to all of our destinations. We'll see...

I'm also slowly coming to the conclusion that I can't hoard all our possessions like I want to. I've already sold my TV, which to me, was like selling my kid. I didn't make Katie sell Gracie or Bella, why do I have to sell my TV. JK But seriously...

Goodbye for now...

Stephen received his Visa today...and made the decision for his first day of work to be AUGUST 6TH! He is still working with Liege HR to decide when we will leave, but we've unofficially decided that we will be leaving around July 29th or 30th! Thanks for the prayers and well wishes...we're getting excited!!

Happy 4th!
