Thanks, everyone for the encouraging words about my little monster. I think Blue and Lion are both just very bored. Blue because preschool is over. And Lion because we went out every day together while Blue was in school. Luckily, next week their new summer activities begin. I wrote all of the times on our calender and I colored each day. Blue for swimming, pink for ballet (which ends this month), purple for cheerleading/gymnastics and green for soccer. Blue loves this. I may have to buy her a little calender for her room and color it for her. In fact, this may be a good way to help her grasp the concept of days of the week...
Anyway, they should be very busy in the coming months. And then, the week their summer activities end we fly to Virginia for ten days! I cannot wait. Even though the horrible tragedy of the plane that crashed into the Atlantic this week has been on my mind a lot. I hate flying. I hate having my children on a plane. I tell myself that flying in a plane is so much safer than riding in a car. I know this. But there is something so terrifying about placing your fate in a total stranger's hands.
Speaking of flying, I am so superexcited I can barely stand it... Jonathan received a phone call today from his best friend, Andy. Andy and Teresa have finally set a date and they are getting married in Lincoln in April of next year. And Andy asked Jonathan to be his best man! So it appears we are going back to England sooner than expected! I cannot believe it! Someone pinch me! We plan to fly to Virginia with the kids and leave them with our family and then fly from DC to England. We can't wait to travel with the kids, but we are waiting until they are at least old enough to know where they are going! Besides, I wouldn't want to bring them to the wedding. And they will have fun with their grandparents, so it will be nice for everyone.
England. I cannot believe it! I get teary just thinking about it. Jonathan wants to spend a good ten days there before the wedding, to take Andy out for a night of debauchery and so we can help with any last minute wedding details. So we will be in England for our anniversary (again)!
I cannot believe in less than a year I will be back there!
