One Month From Today...

...we will be leaving for Newark, then on to Beijing on the 9th, arriving the 10th.

We have most preliminary preparations done. Passports up to date, check. Place to stay, check. Airline tickets, check (although Continental keeps changing flight times). Visas, check. To do yet - figure out Houston airport transport, hotel room in Newark for the night of the 8th, Phantom tickets, make sure everyone has all clothes and other necessities, arrange for doggie care and house sitter, get my classroom ready, and I am sure there is other stuff I am forgetting right now. Put it on the list on the fridge.

The days are flying by, and I am sure in no time, we will begin packing and panicking over little things. Until then, I have tons still to get done around the house that is on my summer to-do list and some doctor's appointments to get out of the way. (the ones I tend to procrastinate over) At least I got the painting at mom & dad's done at the beginning of the summer. That was a big check off on my list.

Until next time...

Hey Laura,

Thanks for the blog info. My husband took a group of kids to Russia this summer (he is a geography teacher) and they posted pics and info each day they were there. It was a great way to see and keep up with their trip. We can't wait to start watching. We will also be following mens gymnastics. One of my former 8th grade students from Arnold (Jonathan Horton) is on the mens gymnastics team. It is gonna be a great summer.

Glad you had a good time in NYC! Love the pics, too! I'm really enjoying the blog...thanks for doing this for those of us who have to watch the Olympics from the across the pond!

Can't wait for you to get back and have another Willie's night!
