As things are getting closer and I am also starting to say final good byes to friends and family. Which makes it seem more real that I will be leaving for 13 months- Yikes! But it is also super exciting. I cannot wait for the big adventure. Anyone in the Chicago land area, I am having a going away party June 24th from 7-10pm at CubbyBear North in Lincolnshire. Come out and have a good time if you are in the area.
This week I have also firmed up some plans for my New Zealand trip! My cousin Mae and her husband Mark are in New Zealand and our my first stop. I am super excited because in talking to them I learned they are planning a 4th of July celebration party the weekend I get there. It should be alot of fun. I also talked to them about the idea of renting an RV and driving around the southern island of New Zealand. It is making me more and more excited. So as things get closer to my departure I will keep you posted of what is to come.
This week I will be spending with my parents in Wisconsin where I plan to do some whitewater rafting or kayaking. My goal is to read a book, relax with my parents, have a mini adventure, and practice my speech for the NEA Convention I am speaking at on June 30th. All in all a good week planned.
