Packing

We are headed back to Houston for a couple of weeks. It has been too long since we saw the grandsons, especially our newest one, Dexter. Will just had a big 6th birthday, Maxwell and Will are starting Kindergarten, and Jack is going to play football this year. Doug and Susan have moved to Austin and we haven't seen their new house....lots of catching up to do.

Today we have been organizing and figuring out what we have to take. This is much easier than when we leave San Miguel de Allende for several months because we don't have to empty the pantry and refrigerator, pack up all our clothes, and put some things away in storage. Still, getting organized to head back takes some time. Do we need this or will we need that? Do we have the cable and power adapter for the external hard drive, how many pesos should we take? Do we need to cash a check? Fill up with gas, check the oil and tire pressure. Well, you know how it is when you are leaving town for a while.

Taylor is recognizing all the activities and he is staying right on our heels just so we know that he is planning to go in the car with us.

We will head out of here tomorrow morning about 6:00 AM and if all goes according to plan and no problems getting around Nuevo Laredo, we will cross the Texas/Mexican border about 3:00 PM and be in the Houston house about 9:00 PM having a slice of pizza and an adult beverage.

Say a little prayer for our safe journey.
