Packing has begun

We're finding it a bit tricky packing for a child between the ages of 6 month to 4 years of age....of either gender! Hopefully there will at least be a few items that will be suitable and the rest will be donated to the orphanage.

I just had to include this picture of Sven packing my precious mattress topper. Since from numerous accounts, the beds in Kaz are pretty hard, we decided to try our luck packing a mattress topper thanks to those space saver bags that take out all the air... and guess what...it really works!!! We're so pleased that we're now taking our pillows as well for some comforts of home. Just had to pass this tip along to those of you who will soon be travelling.

Things are coming along nicely... It's slightly overwhelming at times but we're smiling alot these days ;0)) One week from tomorrow, we leave for Kaz!!!!

Great idea!

Which hotel are you staying at?

Wow, what a great tip!!! Thanks. I had not thought of that, but I actually use those for storing winter blankets. Good job! I also had not thought of the clothing dilemma. We are excited for you and are sending prayers your way for a safe and blessed trip. May all go smoothly and surpass you grandest expectations. (Love the Pic)

This is such a great idea that I ordered a mattress topper for our trip from Overstock.com. I have heard that Petro is a great region. It seems as though there are many siblings that are available in Petro from my blog reading. We purchased inflatable hangers to dry clothing for our trip (another tip that I learned from a yahoo group member). Godspeed! Vonne Barnett
