Here we are only two days from taking off for Oregon. It seems crazy, but my “Things to Do” list seems to be getting longer rather than shorter! Steph’s ready to take command of the household and our geriatric kitty after receiving our “Household Management Guide” and a guided tour from me. Jeremy’s been busy creating this website and will be our communications contact for the summer. Two nights ago Steve had neatly organized all of his wordly possessions for the bike trip into piles that amazingly ended up fitting into his four panniers (saddlebags). The next two days will be a whirlwind as we tidy up essential paperwork, break down THE bike so it fits into a special carrying case, and somehow pack the panniers and their contents into a suitcase. While Steve is officially on his sabbatical, I have two more days with my preschool students this week and a couple of days packing up my classroom next week before my summer begins. Stay tuned!
