Fare Thee Well

Andrew is now officially an ordained missionary. We shall now refer to him as "Elder Andrew".

Final packing today - putting away all his treasures to be saved for his return, packing his new wardrobe - into Nathan's old luggage, which if I recall is the same luggage Steve and I took to Europe. This will be some well traveled luggage. I hope they last. We offered to get new luggage, but ultimately he decided that the old ones would do. How very mature.
Steve and Andrew are going down to Tacoma to pick up their suits today. I will finish up last minute laundry - so that Steve can pack for himself tonight (I don't think it has occurred to him yet that HE needs to pack).
Lots to do today. But not so much tomorrow.

I'll be taking Steve and Andrew to the airport at about 6am. That's pretty much it for me. Well, that and stripping Andrew's room (so that it will become Alex's room).

It was the best of times and the worst of times. Good luck today and tomorrow at the airport. A mission to Japan will be awesome. I think I should have played that song for my son Geoff, though, since he spent his first 6 months in Salzburg.

Absolutely you should have played that song. Unforetunately I don't know any Japanese farewell songs. Domo Arigato, Mr. Roboto just doesn't seem quite the thing.

Asta La Pasta doesn't seem to fit either. After while crocodile.

Good luck Elder Andrew!

I'm sure it will give him comfort to know that you allowed a moment's grace period before rooting your home of his presence.

So, you'll start the stripping at 8-ish?...
