norway tomorrow!!!!

I feel like a little know, when they are excited about something, counting the days, then when they can finally say it's happening TOMORROW, oh the joy.

Honestly, I'd be more excited if I was all packed...but I'm finding that I have way more stuff than I have suitcase space for. I can't leave the giant bags of Reese's behind!

The loose ends, those get to me. The toothbrush, the passport, the phone charger.

The girls are worse than me. They still have their clothes in piles, not decided exactly what to take. Then Sonja found out this morning that her skirt and shirt that she ordered is not coming until tomorrow, and she was counting on them to take with her, wah.

Mommy!, they say, I don't know what to pack!

I have been telling them for the last few weeks to get their stuff together, and let me know if they need anything.

But they're excited.

Suzanne gets motion sickness and isn't loving the idea of the plane ride, or the trek up into the mountains to see Margaret.

We are taking trains and buses too.

Anyway. We went to the zoo on Monday....

Jonathan, Davian, Camille, Annika, and Charlotte Claire.

Little Annika with Kathryn...

Annika and Davian...

Anyway. Tomorrow I leave, and am not taking my computer. So no blog posts for a while unless Emily brings hers, and lets me use it while she goes skiing or something.

When I get home from Norway, I'll be here for a week, then leave for Florida to visit Grandma!....(the kids are so excited about that they can barely stand it....)(yes, Disney!)
