"We better start getting ready" exclaims Liam after a discussion about our Big Trip. I can tell Sean and Liam are getting excited about the trip as it's entering our everyday conversation more and more. Our big trip was something Eric and I would talk about and plan and talk some more and plan some more.. but now the kids are getting their say and it's so much fun.. and a bit dis-concerning when they demand "we better start getting ready!" Liam would like to go to the place with the big red rock.. and when we figured out what he was talking about.. it was Ayers Rock in Australia...hmm.. maybe for our next family trip!
We are making some progress on getting ready, a rental in Costa Rica confirmed, Spanish lessons started, and a quasi plan for our house while we are away.. but when I saw the calendar flip to February.. my heart raced a bit and now there is a slight flutter of panic that we better pick up the pace and pay attention to the wise words of our 6 year old!
