I haven't posted about it yet partly because there has been so much other stuff to post about, but also partly because there is some guilt associated with going on a vacation: the cost, the reality of leaving kids behind, the worry that we're being too frivolous... But, it's time to make it known that we are, in fact, going on a vacation! Erik and I have never done anything like this (just the two of us) and this year seemed like the year to do it. The timing works well since our kids are at a good age to leave with Grandma & Grandpa.
I can't even imagine what it's going to be like to be childless for a whole week: to sleep when I want to and throw all schedule out the window! I'm sure I will miss the kids like crazy, but right now I am getting anxious for a break :)
