Suitcases, backpacks, and golf clubs…oh my!

This is it. Time to say goodbye to the USA and hello to Bahrain. It’s hard to believe our departure is just over an hour away. We’ve packed. We’ve prepared. We’ve said our farewells, so many farewells. We’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of encouragement and support from our family and friends. As hard as it is to leave, it is comforting to know we carry your love with us.

And in true New Griswolds’ style…

We had 5 suitcases, 4 carry-on bags, 4 backpacks, 2 crates, and 1 set of golf clubs to haul… and no cart available. Just as I was carrying the last crate to the front door, a hotel worker pushed an empty cart across the hall in front of me!

Channeling my inner Dr. Seuss:

Good morning!

Today’s the day.

Off we go.

Up, Up and away!!!

Wherever we go,

Whatever we do,

Our hearts will be

Forever with you.
