5 more days!

We leave in 5 days for New York to start our trip. We've been finishing up art classes, figuring out what we can't live without and furiously trying to fit in as much work as possible before we leave...
This is Tracy's latest drawing. Virginia, our drawing instructor looked at this and said, "There is NO way you could have done this two months ago." It's amazing how much you can learn when you get over your fear of the blank page.
So now, all that is left to do is our run through packing (to make sure we have everything); celebrate Roshann's Birthday- the birthday is tomorrow but the party is Monday in beautiful downtown Elmira. We'll be 26 at the party and its only family members! And then figure out how to fit into the suitcase everything that won't fit.. we are committed to taking only carry on luggage- so forgive us if every photo has us wearing the same outfits!
Now Tracy is off to go prepare herself for the onslaught of neurotic relatives!

  1. Wow! You're off and running! Exciting time---today I payed bills and wrote a letter to a doctor and thought about getting out my suitcase. Heard from Lisa today and she's so excited. I can hardly wait to hug you both. Do you think you'll both give me art work someday so I can replace the vegetables you did in 5th grade?'Love you both,
