We’re going! 🙂
We weren’t sure if we were going to be able to take the vacation because of an upcoming funeral. However the funeral is Monday, so we will be able to go ahead with our plans.
Please pray for the family of the woman who passed away. Especially the boys. Two years ago the boys’ mother died in a fire, so they went to live with their grandparents. Last year, the grandmother found out she had brain cancer, and has now passed away. The family has lost so much.
For our vacation, we are going to leave on Thursday, Feb 7th (a very important day for two great kids 😉 ), and head to South Dakota.
We are headed to our friends’ house
to spend a few days. I have a feeling it will be quite snow-covered and cold while we are there. I don’t think anyone will be climbing the silo. 😉
Some more of our friends are going to spend the weekend there as well.
(Dare I even mention how many musical instruments and accessories we will be taking with us?)
On Saturday, the three dads are taking the three daughters to a purity ball. http://www.alphacenterevents.org/purity.cfm
The boys will be spending most of the day at a state Lego League competition and then that evening they will be taking the moms out to a nice dinner. At that dinner, we will show them how to treat a lady, and how a lady should treat them. It is going to be a very special day!
We will probably stay there until Monday morning, then we will find a hotel with a swimming pool. Because, seriously, what is a vacation without a swimming pool? 😀 Our plan is to stay there until Friday morning and then head home. Relaxed and rested. Ahhh, I can’t wait!
