    At this moment, my children are in a plane over an ocean. It's an early graduation gift for both, through college break. It's the trip of a lifetime--I hope. That is the plan. They'll be spending New Years in Amsterdam, flying home from Paris. This was my 22 year old's first trip on a plane today. He's loving it so far, but we'll see what he thinks of a 6 hour flight. My daughter had only flown once before. They were so excited this morning. :-D

    It's so strange to think they're so far away. They'll be fine...they'll be fine...they'll be fine.... :shock:

    Their mother is content to never venture more than 20 min from home.

    You know you raised them right and they can take care of themselves. Travel is broadening, and will give them an education they could never get in college. And when they get home they'll be so full of stories that you will never regret sending them on this trip!!!

    The botched terrorist attack two days before they left sure didn't help. :shock: Oh, mothering is tough business.

    The program they are with is all done with a tour guide, so I know they're in good hands. They had to get there on their own, but will be met at the airport by the guide.
