The other day I went to wake this reluctant morning girl up and she asked about how many days of school we have left. "Five until Christmas break, and five after break 'til we leave."
Hurriedly she sat up, smiled, and said, "Fun!"
You see, we're on our way to Spain. We're heading out in January for a five-month family adventure that I've dreamed about since we first got married. Having spent two years living over seas in my younger days, I have an amazing desire to share this experience with my family. We had talked about the hows, the whys, the details and logistics and figured it would happen some day. Early last spring we decided that given the ages of our kids, the time was right. Now. We're headed on our family sabbatical to Dos Hermanas, a medium-sized town near Seville in southwest Spain.
I'm going to start a separate blog to document the trip and also share a few more details here before we depart. Stay tuned.
