Okay, here's the plan

You may have heard me talking about our big vacation and our big move coming up. In the next four months we'll be packing up and leaving New Zealand, taking a ridiculously cool trip and relocating back to Kansas City.

Here's the plan:

25 Feb: was my last day at work

31 March
: Last day of work for Jake

2 April
: We leave NZ and begin our nine-week-long vacation (we're calling it our world tour, more details to come)

3 June
: We arrive in Kansas City, where we'll find an apartment and start house-hunting

: Jake goes back to work in the KC office he left in 2008; Jamie looks for a job

So we have about five weeks left in New Zealand. In that time we will sell most of the stuff we own, organise the rest for shipping to KC, close our accounts, say goodbye to our friends and make arrangements for our world tour. And I plan to squeeze in lots more fun before we go. It certainly feels like one chapter is coming to a close and another is about to begin.

That's exactly right--one chapter closes, another begins. I am so glad you and Jake have kept us updated on your activities via your blog all this time in NZ, you've had a wonderful time. We were fortunate enough to come stay with you for a couple weeks and we SO had a blast! We're excited for your plans and look forward to hearing all about your travels :)
