While I am VERY excited to leave this -30 degree windchill, and I very much look forward to walking on the beach, I am somewhat sad to be leaving on vacation! How can this be, you ask? Well, this year half of my kids will be left at home.
This makes me sad.
While they will be in the capable care of friends and family, they won't be with ME! One of my favorite parts about vacation is spending "uninterrupted" time together as a family, and as my kids get older, this just isn't going to happen as much.
So, if you end up seeing Evan or Erin or Nina or Molly or Aidan in the week we are gone, give them an extra hug from me!
