We leave for Italy in about 5 months. I have much to do, and it is very overwhelming. Now, I've done all this crap before, only not for an overseas move. I'm trying to learn Italian, which the kids of course pick up much faster than I do. They seem to have inherited the Harrington language gene. Home schooling is not going as well as I thought it would, and that is a trifle aggravating. But, it will come right in the end, I think.
