Our date of departure is Aug 15, 2007. We originally were hoping for July 31, 2006, but God had different plans. August 15th is crucial for many reasons. Our team is in desperate need of our help sooner rather then later. If we get 100% before Aug 15 we will be jumping at the opportunity to fly earlier, but the 15th is the very latest we’d like to leave. The kids school year starts Aug 28th. They will need the two weeks to get over jet lag, before trying to begin a new school year in a different country, school, etc. The chances we have of finding a house in those two weeks are very slim, but we might be able to begin looking and find one shortly after they start school which will help all of us begin to make a new home in Europe.
