The past week has been a blur for the Fry Family Quartet. The moving vans arrived on Wednesday to pack up all of our belongings, which meant we had to pack suitcases of clothes to last us for the next 5 weeks as we bounce from Seattle to Lopez Island to the blue highways that will take us to NYC. Henry and Ruby had both sets of grandparents in town. We put them to work cleaning out refrigerators, cabinets and fireplaces. Thanks, mom(s) and dad(s)! We drove up to Lopez on Sunday after watching little Maggie get baptized. Then we celebrated Grandma White Wine’s birthday. And now? Now Kristine and I are waiting for the ferry back to Seattle so we can fly to NYC and find an apartment (Kenmore Air canceled our Lopez to Seattle leg due to bad weather). What a long, strange trip it’s been.
