They're off.....



Cindy Lou and T. are off to visit Auntie M. in Vail, Colorado!!! I can't believe it!!! I have an identical picture of the two of them about 10 years ago rolling through the airport with their Barbie and Scooby Doo suitcases...I had juice boxes and crayons in them...now they have ipod's, cell phones and laptops!!! Oh my gosh!! How fast the time goes by!!!!! Now they are practically all grown up!!!... As I'm posting this, they have just pulled up the gate in Denver. Well, a few weeks ago we were all visiting my Dad for Father's Day and she proposed that they come out to visit her for a week...which meant flying unaccompianed as well. And having been a flight attendent for 17 years I have tons of horror stories.......anyway....she is not married and has no children....and no comprehension of what a mother feels like letting two of her kids fly across the country by themselves for the first time!!! Well....they have been sooooooo excited and I know they will have a blast. She has tons of fun stuff planned....hiking, fly fishing, mountain biking, white water rafting and horseback riding. It will so much fun for me to spend the week with just Cubby, too. We have lots of fun things to do this week as well. I can't wait for my updates/Skypes!!! Wish me luck!!!

I was teasing your son yesterday about his socks he was sporting with his shorts outside playing hockey. He said all of his other socks were packed for CO!!! Too cute!
