Good-byes

Goodbye photo

We leave for Europe tomorrow morning, with a few days in Copenhagen (Shannon has a conference, the kids and I are on holiday) before our arrival in Paris. Our house has never been cleaner or more organized. I wish we’d done all of this a couple of months ago so we could have enjoyed it ourselves! The bags are mainly packed and the boxes are in the capabable hands (and trucks) of FedEx. So I guess we’re really going.

While this is clearly an exciting adventure for the family it is surprisingly bittersweet. We’re going to miss everyone here so much, a point that has been driven home with the many goodbyes we’ve been saying. We won’t be gone that long, of course, but the trip is making us aware of how lucky we are to have such great friends here in Berkeley. Okay, enough of this or I’m going to get all sappy…

Here are some photos of the kids at the various goodbye events.
