10 days!!!  Can you believe it?  I barely can.  

Things on my to do list...
1. Finish off all the food in the house.  This won't be hard.  We're down to the very last of just about everything except desserts.  Which is good and bad.  Good that we get a new yummy dessert every night and bad for the waistline.  
2. Laundry.  I can't wait for a dryer.  Hanging everything takes  Really.  Trying to stay on top of laundry for a family of five is hard but when your washer takes 2 hours on the fast cycle and you have to wait a whole day for it to dry.  Please.  
3. Enjoy Spain.  It's been an incredible experience.  I can't believe I've lived in Europe for 2 years.  I never even wanted to come and visit.  I'm so glad we did it.  I've now have a true love for Europe.  
4.  Organize.  Sort my apartment into 3 categories.  Coming with us, air shipment and boat.  This sounds a lot easier than it is.  
5. Pack.  This is the easy part.  I only have to pack what comes with us.  Luckily, Drew's firm pays for packers.  I love this.  
6. Wait.  Yeah, I know there are only 10 days left but I'm a little anxious.  
7. Prepare a talk.  My least favorite thing on the list especially in Spanish.  
8.  Play with the kids.  This is the fun part.  I just need to remember to do it.  I love going to the parks and playing outside.  Hopefully it will stop raining so we can do this.  
9.  Go and check out Drew's new office.  They moved in today.  Drew loves the new place.  Too bad he doesn't get to enjoy it longer.

Bet you are excited but what a GREAT EXPERIENCE you have had living in Spain. We are excited about you getting a little closer to everyone. Good luck with all your sorting and packing. Good the company does some for you. Are the kids excited about getting back I know you said Stella was.

Counting down the days, it seems to have gone by quite fast. You'll do great with you talk, your Spanish is great and you do so well. Hope the rain stops so you can get to the park more before the move. And the kids will love the new home with a yard and a tree house to play in. How many kids dream of a tree house, but never have a tree big enough to put a tree house in it. Sounds like lots of fun for the kids, mommy and daddy too.

I remember having to line dry all of our family's clothes in Japan. It was hard work. It's way more fun to line dry clothes in Montana where the air smells sweet and the kids can play outside.

I'm so excited for you. And I'm glad you remember that you must play with your kids. Good luck!
