Our Departure Date is Set

We finally have a departure date. We will be leaving here on February 25th and will arrive in Brazil at 7:00am on February 26th. To say that we are excited is an understatement. We have so much to do that we don't know where to begin. We have some loose ends as far as paperwork that we need to get tied up. We also have some final items that we need to purchase and then we will be free to start the packing process. We will probably have to pack and repack, but that's ok. We can only take 2 suitcases per person and if they are over 50 pounds we will have to pay extra. So, we are going to try to stay within the 50 pound mark as closely as we can. The scary part is, 50 pounds and 12 suitcases is not that much for a family of 6. We are nervous that we are going to take things that we really don't need or leave things that we really should have taken. It will all work out, but it is a little crazy around here right now.
