Adios! I mean Sayonara...

Love the post card from my Hawaii pal Shirley Perley...

And Wee are off...

The bike, the jogging stroller, the car seat, the carry-on's, the clothes, the wet suit, the computer (hope to keep in touch), books (Bible, coloring books, Japanese language book, Waking The dead & my journal) Asics, snacks, my tunes... you name it we got it packed! I think Kainoa has the most luggage! BUT well worth it to have the whole family going!

Kona to Tokyo, Tokyo to Fukuoka, Fukuoka to Fukue! We have a home stay waiting for us on the little island. I am looking forward to staying with a local Japanese family & totally getting into the culture... Bring on the seaweed! If they are anything like my Canada & St. Croix family this could be another GREAT experience! Actually, as long as they aren't as messy as my Australia roomie anything would be GREAT! (totally joking Eileen!)

AND for fun during this packing adventure in the Wee home... Jim timed me to pack my bike. (I think it was his way of just trying to get me to hurry up and get the darn thing put away...).

My bike out of the box & 18 minutes later, my bike in the box!


Chat laters... and BEST to everyone racing CDA & IM France too... have a fun LONG day!
