Leavin' on a Jet Plane

My middle sister, Leaving It All Out There, left for East Asia yesterday. She is going to be there for 2 years before she comes back to visit. I can't imagine what it must be like to leave for a country in which you have to watch every word you say/type and duct tape book covers and rip out all the title pages in order to take them into the country. But this is the life she has been called to live and I can't admire her more for leading this life.
We've known for years this day would be coming but as much as I'd wished that would make it easier it did not. I'm really going to miss her and family events aren't going to be the same without her.

The thing that breaks my heart the most about her being gone is that she will not get to watch Sydney grow up. I hate that Sydney will be almost 3 before she sees her aunt again! I guess this just means that I will have to be super diligent in keeping pictures and updates posted, so that should be good for the blog! :)

Sydney & Aunt Katie

We love you, Katie!!
