You know that trip I mentioned in a 2011 post? The one where I said I wanted to take a long trip somewhere. Well, it is becoming a reality! A couple years ago I came up with the idea of taking the kids out of school for a year and using the tuition money for a trip to Europe. My patient and supportive best friend/husband agreed even though he can only travel with us part of the time so that is what we are doing. Come Fall it will be goodbye "Back-to-School" - Hello World! Okay, well technically it is Hello Europe! but hopefully just the first of several adventures to see the world.
