#1 - I can go :)
#2 - My husband has PLENTY of help with Grandma and Granddaddy visiting
#3 - My mom and I get to share the 7 hours of driving ONE WAY
#4 - My father-in-law is preaching for Brian on Sunday:)
#5 - Did I mention that I get to see my little nephew??
While I am very excited about my little "adventure"...
I am nervous. My family is MORE than capable to care for the kids!! And my kids feel very safe in their care. I feel like they can hold down the fort:)
But I've never left them overnight before.... EVER!!
(only remotely close case was when Brian took just Anna down to his parents in January!)
For 7 years and 26 days I have ALWAYS had most of my children in a room next to me!!
I think I'm going to be ok... hopefully!
But I'm seriously going to miss them... and am super glad I'll be home on Sunday afternoon.
Driving-chat time with my mom... time to get to know my brother's new family more.... all perfectly timed when my family is being cared for... seeing my little nephew and maybe just crying over how beautiful he is
