Good Bye and God Bless

I am now in the last 48 hours of our Cayman adventure.  Tomorrow is full of business meetings all day for the government insurance company I work with and then Thursday I fly out.  Katie and I started this adventure together on May 31, 2007 and it ends now with just one of us here to close up shop.  In the last few days we have sold our car and most of our stuff, and what we didn't sell and wanted to keep is already home or packed in my suitcases to return with me.

I will remember these last days mostly for an empty house and a lot of running around to close every last detail of our lives down here.  It has been a strange two weeks knowing that so much of what I was doing was the "last time" for Cayman.  Driving around today for the last time was both exciting and bittersweet.  You can't live somewhere for almost six years and not develop an attachment. Still, it is now on to the next phase of our lives and that phase is back home in Texas.  We will always have fond memories of our time in Cayman and as the birthplace of our daughter it will always have a pull on us to come back and visit to show her where she was born and the places we used to take her to.  

This blog is coming to an end and we want to thank everyone who followed us over the years.  In many ways this blog was not only our open letter home but also a document for later in life to look back on this time and remember.  For everyone who visited over the years, who talked to us on the phone or who just sent their love and prayers we are so grateful for all your support and look forward to seeing you a lot more now that we will be home.

Thank you all and God Bless!
