    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.

    Yesterday, I had our two DGDs here and they toured the sewing room. I am making pink socks today for a baby doll.
    Of course, I couldn't resist the opportunity to teach the girls about the log cabin block. They listened intently while I explained the traditional colors (red or yellow) for the enter patch. Then they each received a small ornament to place on their Christmas tree. I was thinking of you and your love of the log cabin block. Dear Friend,
    we will all keep your children in our hearts and prayers for safe travel. Sew--you may now relax at home :-)Hugs

    Oh, Karla, they will have a wonderful time!

    What a wonderful gift to your children!

    I can relate, though..... The 2 years 3 months my youngest served in the Peace Corp in Nicaragua was worrisome to say the least....... She was sick a lot of the time and the living conditions weren't the greatest. On a positive note, her Nica neighbors were like family to her and made sure she was okay on a daily basis. I am still thanking them....

    No, no. That's stress you don't need. Save that until they're back in the air.

    I received a text--they are in their rooms for the night and are happy and tired. They saw some amazing sites today and are headed back out for more first thing in the morning. Happy sigh. :-D

    I'm not giving out specifics due to their safety--overly cautious mother. :wink: I can share more later.
