Bon Voyage Brandon & Megan

Jan 1/2013
The day has finally arrived. The kids are packed and moving to Australia today. Time has flown. No more freezing our hands packing boxes and furniture into the trailer to move to the lake for storage. The weather there will be 31 c today.  Aww but Saskatchewan is sending them off with sun and a very mild -4 c day. We spent a wonderful day yesterday helping them organize all their bags. The chaos in Doug & Marlys's living room slowly assumed some order amid the dogs and travel gear and beneath the Christmas tree. Brandon cooked us an incredible pasta meal the evening before. Tequila Fettuccini yummers along with a very tasty cheese cake that Marlys made a delicious sour cherry sauce for. We rang in the new year with some pink champagne always a good choice. This kids had a few delays on the Saskatoon end of the flight.... the plane was delayed getting here and they missed their connection from Denver to LA. So after about an hour with the United girl they got a hotel in Denver and a new flight to San Francisco and on to Seattle. They will arrive about 24 hours later than planned but no worries. Only the beginning of their 4 year adventure. Brandon doesn't start med school until the 28th so they have time to get themselves sorted out. So after a few tears and many hugs they flew out at 5:00. I am trying to convince Meg that she should start a blog to keep everyone up to date on their life down under. Will keep you all posted.
     Respect... Relax... Enjoy... Dorri
