Almost there...

In our last week here we've been trying to tie up all our loose ends, and see as many friends as we can before we leave.  We moved out of our house and stored or donated all of our possessions.  We also did as many "American" activities as we could, including going to a baseball game, and eating tons of American food like burgers, BBQ, and our favorite, Blackjack Pizza.
