We now find ourselves only one week away from departure! It's bizarre to think that we'll be returning to the country during the same holiday season we're exiting now. It's been such a wonderful break, however, that it will be a great bookend on the other side of this journey. It's time for us to get our International Driving Permits in case we want to rent cars abroad. It's also time to commence fake-packing our bags to make sure we can keep our bag weights within reason and that everything fits. This is an important game of Tetris.
We made a short video of our families and the time we spent together over the holidays. When we return to Canada, these children will all be one year older. It's quite a price to pay for this trip of ours, but we hope it's worth it. Here's hoping your holiday was full of happiness and good sleep!
