And we left

17 June 2011 was a full day of last things to organize, last milkshakes with friends for the kids and off to the airport at 8pm.

A whole lot of friends and family came to see us off.

the Linkway farewell committee… : )

how about a last Wimpy meal… and coffee…

Some last goodbyes and off we went with KLM… Big excitement. For the girls it was their first time flying and the boys have only been on a plane once when they were two years old.

and of course Betty went with…

Still feeling good that we could understand the air hostesses speaking dutch…

Saying goodbye

How can you go without saying goodbye… Or as I tell my children, you sometimes have to leave something to experience something new.

We said goodbye to family and friends, but thanks to all the technology we are in contact all the time… and there will be visits.

Packing up

On Monday morning 6 June 2011 the moving company arrived to pack all our stuff. I can’t complain, I did not have to pack one box. But still to have five people in your house for five days can get busy…  ‘deurmekaar’ is the word.

And each day you have less things you can use. But all went well. On  Friday at 10am the truck with the container arrived. The biggest container you can get. Last packing to be done and then loading it all.

And off went almost everything we own. Ready to be loaded on a ship and sail to France...
