Leavin' On A Jet Plane (part 1)

Cue the Peter, Paul and Mary music!!! All her bags are packed, she's ready to go...well sort of!!!

Left the house at 5:00 AM sharp to get the girl to the airport for a 6:55 AM flight to San Jose. the team will go through processing there and fly direct to Beijing on Monday. Bags are not very full right now. They get all their team gear in SJ, and also wants to leave room for any purchases over in Beijing!

But that means we have tons of stuff to box up and ship to Chicago. So another task I have to get done by Wed/Thurs. She says she needs the stuff right when she gets home, so I will try to send it close to the time we leave. Sigh. More on that later.

Starting to gather stuff that we need to remember - passports, tickets, med letters, pins for the kids to trade, stuff that needs to be signed.

T minus 120 hours and counting!
