The packing War Room is reopened!
Saturday, November 24, 2007
We used the nursery as our packing room for trip #1 and it's once again being used for that function as we prepare for trip #2. Of course this packing is all the more special because we get to pack (at least for the return trip) for three. There are tons of good packing tips on the FRUA forums and yahoo groups so I'm not going to repost those here since it'll take up pages of space.

Oh, side note, when you know your region I highly recommend joining a region specific yahoo group (assuming one exists for your region). They can be extremely valuable with information that is...well...specific for your region.

We'll be about 95% packed by tomorrow (toiletries, etc. being the exceptions). Stef and I did some practicing of putting on all the layers (including hats, scarfs, coats, and gloves) just to get a feel for all that clothing, it was quite funny. I've been monitoring the weather outlook and it's going to be a balmy 19 degrees on Thursday when we arrive in Novosibirsk.

    Good luck on your trip, I'm so excited for yall to bring home your little guy.

    Rob and I have been practicing the layering look too but for real. Somehow we ended up with snow on Thanksgiving and it is coming down again today. Very odd for us. This must be Mother Nature's way of prepping us!
