Taking Inventory

Trying to pack. Bought lots of wooden gifts. Trying to find clothes to pack around the wooden gifts so that they won't break.

Stared at the closets. Here's what I found:

Sandals, sundresses, shorts, short-sleeve shirts. Hmmm. Even for California in winter, not going to work.

Grace: two pairs of pants, one sweater. No closed-toed shoes.

Josiah: a few pairs of long pants, one jacket.

Amy: 3 pairs of pants, 1 long-sleeved shirt, 1 jacket, 1 pair of Keds.

Gil: lots of pants (of course), one sweatshirt, one jacket.

Can you tell we live in the land of eternal summer?

Now, before you start worrying about your winter-deprived missionaries freezing to death, my best friend Anne has already been on it, and has quite a collection of clothes for us to borrow. We'll be fine. Grace will have to sport the socks-with-sandals look for our overnight layover in London, but she'll be so thrilled that she finally gets to wear socks, that no one will mind a bit.

My main concern is how exactly I am going to pack all those wooden gifts without any padding. Or newspaper. Or bubblewrap. Any ideas?
