Wow. These past few days have been CRAY! On Saturday I had my going away party. I was so happy that so many people could come, but saying goodbye to all of them was really hard. Of course there were tears, but I know that it is all for the best. Today I had to say goodbye to the Lenahan's, that was definitely one of the harder goodbyes for me. Oh yeah on Saturday before my party we went and had family photos done before I left, it was so fun fun. We even brought Rudy with us, but he was not to crazy about the flashes.
So packing has actually been pretty easy, I went through my closest and all my drawers and grabbed the clothes I liked. It was so cool because mom told me to buy these space bags that suck all the air out and flatten your clothes, they work really well! I finally finished today and I had to weigh my suitcase ( weight limit of 44lbs). I was holding my breath, guess what it weighs, 43 pounds!
It was very strange going through today knowing that it was my last day here for a year, but the extent of this trip has not fully registered in my brain yet. I am sure it will soon. The next time that I write it will be in Peru!!!! I am so excited!! I will keep you posted!
