It's been almost 8 months since the last posting. My how things have changed!
My wife has had both knees replaced.
I have a new niece.
My daughters have booked a trip to Japan for 13 days (they leave in 23 days).
My middle child spent a month in Iceland as part of the study abroad program.
There are other things but these seem to be on the top of the list for now.
The girls are headed to Japan. It gets more and more real the closer it gets. Brittany, the youngest (21) is excited and getting a little anxious. She spent a month in Iceland so is ready but still it is a big trip. Laura, the oldest (25) has not traveled much except with the family but is really looking forward to this. The trip was a present from Diann and I. We cashed in a ton of frequent flyer miles and hotel stay points to book the flight and hotel for them. They are going first class there and back so it should be a nice trip.
I think this will be a huge benefit to them. I can only imagine the confidence it will build and the horizons it will expand. The world is a much smaller place than when I was young and people should get out there and see it. I have and I want my kids to do the same.
My son (17) wants to go. I have to have someone here to our hold our hands while my wife and I worry.
