packing

DSC_6791

 here is isaac helping us pack and weigh our cases.  he felt like things would go better if he was superman (strength, speed, etc.)  when he stood on the scales he exclaimed, "i'm 40 o'clock!"

 

so it is the day of departure and we are feeling ready.  we fly from lexington to atlanta where we will have a 3 hour layover...we are excited to see sherry's parents there and say a final farewell.

 

then we fly to London (gatwick) transfer to heathrow by bus...our dear friend rachel turner and one of her daughter's (eve) will meet us for a quick visit.  then we board our longest flight at about midday london time (6am-ish Wed. Lexington time).  the flight to melbourne is a robust 23 hour jaunt.  we arrive around 10pm melbourne time on thursday evening (6am thursday morning in Lexington).

we appreciate prayers as we travel and especially as we transfer in London and catch the bus.  for those of you migt not know, we retunr to Lexington on August 31st.

Issac is such a cutie. I am going to miss him and you guys too. Keep me updated on things in Australia.
