The wheels are turning

Today we moved into the Richmond Inn Hotel. We were able to get the largest room in the place, thank goodness, and it has two bathrooms, which means Lucas gets his own bathtub! In our flat, we had him bathing in his little baby bathtub that was really too small for him. He doesn't know how to act having the whole bathtub to splash around in! They also provided a pack and play for him to sleep in. He was really busting out of his little crib that our friends let us borrow, and I think he is very happy to have some room to stretch. I was a little concerned about his bedtime tonight since things are so different right now, but he is such a champ. Went right to sleep as soon as I put him down.

This morning, he had his last set of immunizations, so he is officially ready to be a jet-setter! Afterwards, we met up with some friends and their very cute kids for lunch, and then we headed to the flat for a packing spree. We are pretty much finished with everything. Tomorrow we will go back and do a walk through to make sure everything is separated into air and sea cargo piles and that we haven't missed anything crucial.

Catalina and Sebastian met us at the hotel this evening to say goodbye. Oh the tears that flowed. Cata has been such a blessing to have here in London. We have had so many good times together and I really can't say enough how much her friendship has meant to me. What a small world that she went to college with Edgar back in Colombia and wound up here all these years later after falling in love and marrying an Englishman!

Off to bed now...another busy day tomorrow!
