in transition

Eeekk! All of a sudden things are moving very fast here. Our departure date has changed and now we're leaving end of June (one month earlier than planned). All the pieces are slowly coming together: the container for our stuff is arranged, we got the plane tickets, a whole lot of moving gear, and Jonas' passport arrived in the mail today (An American passport, how cool is that? The Icelandic and Danish passport holder have been examining it thoroughly :) ) As for Denmark, we got housing set up for the first four months, and we even bought two bikes as well as a bike trailer for the kids. More specific plans makes excitement for the next thing a lot more concrete as well, but it's still bittersweet to pack our life together with all that has become familiar and comfortable here. I'm sure the last couple of weeks will go extra fast with packing, seeing and saying bye to friends, welcoming Bjarni's sister who is coming for a short visit, and getting around to our favorite places in Boston one last time. We have planned a last trip to New Hampshire too with Silja's best friend from preschool and her family just before we leave, so that should hopefully be a fun end to it all.
Before arriving to Denmark mid-August we will spend a month and half in Iceland, and both Bjarni and I are so excited to get to spend a good chunk of time there over the summer: Here comes sunny walks at 10pm, swimming in outdoor pools (also without kids, uuhh!), taking pictures of Silja and Jonas wearing their Icelandic sweaters with mountains and sheep in the background, eating lots of fish and getting back into driving again. As much as I can be so sad about leaving this wonderful place, I'm full of butterflies over everything that awaits.
