*Update: Erik's Germany trip has been post-poned because of the volcanic ash cloud. We'll wait for the dust to settle (literally!) and hopefully Erik & Doug will still get a chance to go in May.*
There are a lot of things happening these days.
1. This Friday Erik is going to Germany for a whole week with his brother Doug. They have an opportunity to help with a church building project in Berlin. So, little old me will be flying solo with the 3 kids during that time. Erik has never been away from me and the kids for more than 2 or 3 nights (and never since we've had 3 kids), so this will be a first for us! I'm feeling alright about it at this point, but I am bracing myself for some LONG days and an even LONGER week.
2. At the beginning of May we get to see these 2 get married in Atlanta, Georgia!
Erik's cousin, Chris & his wonderful fiance Jessica (who we got to meet at Christmas) are getting married on May 8...
3. Which brings me to the next exciting part - my mom will be coming to stay with the kids so Erik and I can go to the wedding without them :) Plus I'll still get to spend some time with my mom here in Abbotsford after we get back from our trip.
