yes, I've been slow to post this...
Right before the boys and I boarded the bus with the rest of the embassy families and non-essential staff we took a picture. We thought, "why not?" At this point we really thought we'd be back together in a few weeks. Looks like it'll be the last family photo of us in Tunisia, taken at the American Cemetery.
I don't think I got any sleep that night, I never do before flying.
Waiting to board the plane, it was nice that it was only embassy families since we were all in the same boat: stressed, tired, worried, ect ect... we let the kids run wild!
Our thought of not being gone was reflected in my poor packing skills. I did NOT pack for any cold or long term! I had to buy Keenan some sweatshirts and a slightly thicker fleece jacket along with a snow hat for Keenan, all of which he keeps leaving at school!! ARG! This morning I felt a little bit like a redneck, since Keenan left his new jacket at school and it was cold this morning I dressed him in a long sleeve shirt followed by 2, yes 2 sweatshirts with his spring jacket on top.
