Just under a week until the Australian chapter of our lives will be officially ended and the amount of change it is rapidly hitting home. The stuff has been leaving our Sydney house at a furious pace. The furniture is nearly gone, our shipment of toys, books, games and the other stuff we couldn't live without is packed and headed back to Boston. The cars are gone (it was especially hard saying good-bye to our Kluger, "Australian Julie" was such a good car). In six days the EwingFive will follow and leave Australia on Australia day (like the Fourth of July). A bit fitting that we're leaving the country on the day they celebrate discovery and independence, read into that what you will.
Next week I'll say goodbye to Vistaprint's awesome Sydney office, which will be hard; and, the family will say goodbye to Sydney, which we've loved. One thing is certain, if our Australian chapter is any indication of how lucy we are and how incredible life can be, we're all very excited about the next chapters.
