We fly to Sydney tomorrow! Kind sisters from our ward Relief Society (our women’s group from church) came and helped clean our home. In just 2 hours they cleaned 2 bathrooms, the fridge, washed the walls, wiped out closets, washed windows, dusted and more. They helped so much! Their work really lifted my spirits!

We are safely in the beautiful LAX international terminal trying to be patient. 2 hours down and 3 to go before our 10:20
flight to Sydney. We had a lovely dinner of crab cakes then chicken salad at III Forks restaurant. Dad gave a pass along card to the hostess! (card with mormon.org
address) A server whose family is from Ogden came and spoke to us.
We are hearing announcements in French, Chinese, and Tagalog. Sorry I did not call more of you. It was a crazy crescendo to the end to get the house clean and packed and our luggage ready to go.
