I can’t believe that we leave in a few short days for New York City. I am so nervous but excited at the same time. I am going to miss Johnny and Joley like crazy but have set up Skype so we can see each other while I am there. I know they will be okay and I am sure time is going to fly and it will be over before I even know it. I have just never left my kids, especially for this amount of distance.
We received our travel plans and our flight is a few hours so I am hoping that time flies too. Kenzie and I are right over the wing on the way there and I am excited to see how that experience will be. On the way home, currently we are separated but I am hoping we can fix that or some nice person will allow me to sit with my daughter. I am having a hard time right now figuring out if I want to check a bag or not. I am thinking I might try to bring a small purse, my larger laptop bag that will hold my camera too, and then Kenzie to carry a backpack that holds our clothes. Crayola has kindly said they would send her projects home and I might take them up on that. I just need to make sure we have enough room for our stuff (plus anything I can pick up for the kiddos left home).
I know I won’t have time to do much outside of what Crayola sets us up to do. But, I am thinking about getting up early on Sunday morning and heading over to St. Patrick’s Cathedral. It is important to me to attend mass and I can’t think of a nicer way to do that than to go to a church with so much history. If I don’t go, I will be attending Sunday evening when I get home. I just think it might be a fun and spiritual experience for Kenzie and I to go to St. Patrick’s Cathedral.
Kenzie and I still need to go shopping for her outfit for Saturday and she has yet to start her project to bring with us. I am now concerned it may not dry in time to take with us. I hope it does though and will use a hair dryer if necessary to get it done. We have been so busy and things are so chaotic that we have just not got the basics done. We need to get busy!!!
I am bringing my netbook and will be on Foursquare and Twitter over the weekend. Be sure you follow me for the latest of what we are up to. I will be posting pics to Twitter as well whenever I can. It is going to be so much fun, and despite my anxiousness, I am so excited to go!
