Well we have passed the 3 month mark. In less than three months we will board a plane and leave our friends and family (our Framily -to steal from the Sprint Commercial) and we will head to our new home where we will be greeted by the people who are and will become our South African Framily!
We have gotten our things mostly sorted into the sale, trash, keep, or take piles. And now we are working on pricing things for our yard sale and posting things on Craigslist. By the way if you are in the KC area and aren’t doing anything on April 18th & 19th come on by our Yard Sale. If you are in the area and are in need of well just about anything let us know we just might have it. J
We are also trying to spend as much time as possible with our Framily. Most of our evenings are spent with friends or our church family. Kansas City has been a wonderful home for us and our framily and the memories we have made have shaped who we are. We have had lots of laughs and adventures together that we will not soon forget. As we look back on the memories we have made we also look forward to memories we will make.
Tomorrow is Joe and I’s last official day at our jobs. Today may well have been our last walk on the Trolley Track Trail. The next few months will be filled with last moments. Our first few months in South Africa will be filled with lots of firsts. But as our Pastor reminded us to today whatever we are doing we should do it with Love. So as we try to be fully present in the closing moments of our time in Kansas City we are also trying to be prayerfully preparing for our move to South Africa.
Until next time remember next time you go to make a purchase that someday you (or someone else) is going to have pack it, sell it, or trash it….
