Leaving on a Jet Plane

Leaving on a Jet Plane

We have officially bought one-way tickets to fly away from our island in the sun. And as much as I have been looking forward to moving on, it is sad to think that we won’t be able to see the ocean from Indiana. Not that I am really attached to the ocean or anything. However, Hawaii is the place where Micah and I got to be us, to really come together and become one, so it will always have a special place in our hearts.
We leave Independence Day night and arrive in SLC the next morning. My favorite part of the ticket buying experience was giving them the name and birthdate of our infant. Hmmm . . . Baby Heiselt? May 1st, 2007? I don’t know what his birthdate is, for heaven’s sake. It could be tomorrow for all I know . . . .

Yes, the picture is a repeat, but I thought it fitting.

  1. WOW!! You guys are getting so close! Can’t wait for the big reveal on your new arrival!! I hope it IS tomorrow. That last whole month seems to last FOREVER for me.

    I have to say, I cannot comprehend anyone NOT being in love with the ocean, (I guess that comes with being a California girl… I’m still going through withdrawls!) but I’m really glad you are happy to be moving on, rather than heartbroken. ‘Cuz after all, the rest of your LIFE will be on the mainland, not in Hawaii. I will never forget one Sunday in my parents’ ward when a newly moved-in couple spoke through tears about finally leaving BYU Hawaii with their little baby (named Ocean) for the mainland. Both were haolis, they just got REALLY attached to that little island. I’m sure they had some kind of spiritual talk planned, I just never quite figured out what that was…

  2. I have three things to say:

    A) I’m sorry you didn’t get into NYU, because I know you really wanted to. But, I bet you will be happy you didn’t after your done at Indiana, and the experience you will have there. I read on Wikipedia that it’s considered one of the most beautiful schools in the nation, among other things.

    B) We will miss you guys! It seems like with school and having Kiaya, we haven’t been able to hang out like we did when we lived in Hauula. We want to do family home evening this coming up Monday- that is if you haven’t had the baby yet, and of course if want to.

    C) Your AMAZING!! For those of you who don’t live here and haven’t been able to see, an almost due, pregnant Lizzie running the streets of Laie, are missing out! You don’t even look pregnant except from the side. I have to say you are quite an inspiring person. WAY TO GO!

  3. It was a pre-pregnancy picture, I think. But I could be wrong. Either way, I wouldn’t have been showing at all.
