This is going to be a particularly hectic week, too, because Rick and I leave for a cruise to Bermuda on Thursday (praise God!!) We are taking the kids to Windsor on Thursday night and then leaving Friday afternoon to go to Kansas City for Krissi to do my hair. We're spending the night with her Friday night and then fly out of KCI Saturday morning at 6:30 a.m., going to Baltimore, MD. Our cruise leaves that day for two days in Bermuda. We port back in Baltimore on Thursday, but are staying in Baltimore for another night to see the sights. Then it's home to get the kids.
It's bittersweet, really. Rick and I haven't been on vacation by ourselves since Eli was a baby. We are so ready to spend some much-needed time together. It's been a tough year in some respects. But, leaving the kids will be hard, especially Brynne. They'll have a great time staying at grandma and papas, with the pool and all. And they'll go to the lake for the weekend. But, I'll miss them so much. I am with someone under the age of 14 all the time, so it will be strange to actually be with Rick, alone, without having to worry about getting home to them.
Do pray for the kids, however. I am nervous about my parents' pool, getting sick or hurt while we are gone, missing us, etc. Pray that all goes well and that we all have a great time with much-needed time apart.
I will attempt to attach a couple of funny photos from the past week. Enjoy!
