This is it! We are leaving Nunavut tomorrow and headed to the Yukon. Exciting times ahead I tell you.
We have had a great last couple of days. Our house has been full of friends visiting and we have made the rounds around town to say our goodbyes. Last night we had a great party up here; the house was pretty busy until after midnight. It has been hard to say goodbye to the amazing friends we have made here. Tomorrow out at the airport is going to be tough. I think I will probably just bawl my eyes out.
Kugluktuk was good to us. We will always have fond memories of our time here. It is where we bought our first house, had our first child, shot our first caribou.... so many firsts! Everyone we pass on the street says it is too soon for us to leave, but we are ready for the new jobs, house and life ahead of us. We are leaving with memories and stories galore.
Thank you to all of the friends we made while we lived here in Nunavut. We felt blessed to have you all in our lives.
Updates will follow as soon as we get settled. We should arrive in Faro on the 22nd. And don't worry- we will keep blogging!
love Kara, Matthew and baby Hunter
