Tentative travel date: July 20th!

Our agency just called to let us know that it looks like our travel date could be as early as July 20th...only 3 weeks away!!! Panic and excitement have begun to sink in!!! There is so much to do....but no complaints! We'll be taking this one step at a time. I've begun my famous lists ;))...which I'm sure that Sven will appreciate as we run all around town picking stuff up and getting organized.
