So here we are at SFO before our 12 hour flight to London! It has been a lot of work to get to this point. We spent the day packing and cleaning and shutting down the house before our trip. It was nice to have the whole day to prepare. I wish I had a little more time, but I got everything important done. Erik had a few hours to work. I went on a walk with Nancy this morning, and she will actually come and stay at our house part of the time while we are gone. It feels comforting to have someone here to look over the house.
We got to the airport and waited in line for a half hour to check in with our passports and luggage. It feels like all those months of work are coming to fruition. I can’t wait to get to London with the family.
We saw the Etheringtons in the airport. They are off to Italy. We settled into the plane. Everyone has their own entertainment screen. Erik and I sat with Maren. Brandon and Nicole sat together, and Camille and Robin sat together. It is a full flight. We had dinner and watched movies and played games. It was hard to actually get to sleep, but we dozed for part of the trip. We will wake up and be most of the way to London!
