The weekends before we left for Oz was busier than ever. Nancy was tasked to help organize two big parties for her co-workers at Kaiser Permanente – a back-to-back weekend of celebrations – a picnic and a retirement party in Glendale. Ethan and Madison also had their football games respectively with Camarillo High School and the Camarillo Roadrunners. We also had a kids fest for church that took place in Pasadena. On top of that, we had members of our family who travelled from Manila to visit us here in the US. One of those weekends was so busy, that our family was spread out with Madison cheering in Oxnard, with Nancy running a picnic in Glendale, while I had the rest of the kids in Pasadena. Welcome to our life!
I’ve flown with Virgin before, but never on an international flight. The plane, as I had expected was bigger than the Virgin America planes I’ve flown. The plane left on time. An hour in to the plane ride, dinner was served. We had Beef Bourguignon and Chicken Casserole. After dinner, we just went to sleep, and I woke up after 6 hours, and I decided to finish writing this blog entry.
