Random last day kid pics for the grandparents

One of the hardest things about flying 8000 miles away is the separation from our dear family.  

We said painful good byes to my mom and sister about 2 weeks before departure, then embarked on more of the same throughout the holiday season. 

We left a day later than expected due to cancelled flights, from the Papa Chopstix grandparents home.

In a way it was relaxing because my packing of several weeks stress had already been done.  We even went to a nature center.

At least, I relaxed after I repacked our way-too-many pieces of carry-on and we had a plan for hauling 16 suitcases and 14 small(ish) bags from Dayton to Louisville… Thanks, W father and son!

  1. Thank you for sharing these pictures with us! Beautiful family and helpers too!!!!!! Life is sure full of bitter sweet stuff! Air hugs!!!!! ❤

  2. Good byes are hard. I just spent 5 days down in the county saying good bye to my Sani friends. Lots of hugs, a few tears, lots of pleading not to leave China… and lots of good, country food!  Sigh…
