Leaving Olympia

After seven great weeks enjoying our friends and family in Washington and Oregon, we packed up our house in preparation for leaving for the Philippines and made a quick trip to Boise to visit Charles and other family members there.

We enjoyed seeing where Charles goes to church, lives, and works. When we toured Charles's work place he tried to convince us that the assembly work he does is harder than it looks.

It does look like it requires lots of mental effort. Thanks for the tour, Charles.

It was a special treat to get to spend our last days in the USA with Charles.

We also attended my cousin's wedding

And got so spend some time with my cousins. It was a real blessing to get to see these people. After we took this picture on Saturday afternoon we left for the airport. When we arrived we found out that our plane had mechanical problems and that we might have to wait until the next day for a flight. That wasn't great news because our flight to the Philippines out of Seatac Airport was at 8 AM the next morning. We considered renting a car and driving all night, but in the end the airline came up with a different plane.

One of our last beautiful views of Washington was of Mt. Rainer. We arrive late, but our friends, the Dodges, brought us our luggage and we were able to get everything packed and ready for our flight to the Philippines.
