Nina´s question: Ok...I'd like you to write about what you plan to do the three weeks you'll be Stateside. (Besides eat grits!) ;)
Well, I have to say that everyone in the house has been super excited about the trip to the States in less than a week.
Thinking how close the date is getting, I can’t believe I am sitting in the computer instead of doing all the things I have to do.
All visits are gone so I need to clean the house, lots of washing clothes need to be done, grocery shopping done. Tomorrow is the girls´ last day of school and we will be pretty much gone all day with all the plays and celebrations they have prepared at the school. Monday, we will be travelling to Madrid because is it from where our plane leaves… but here I am, spending some time with you…. Should I just get up and leave…. ??
We are all thinking in the things we want to do. We definitively want to spend lots of time with family and friends. We do also want to spend sometime on our own. We are thinking about leaving the kids a couple of days with my in laws and taking a little trip just the two of us. It has been a long time since we had a date, but we have never spend the night out without the girls since my first one was born. I think that will be a much needed time for the both of us. We want to take the chance to pray over some decisions and try to make some plans.
I want to go Starbucks every day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :) aaaahhhh, Frapuccinos.
I want to eat in Macarroni Grill, I want to eat lots of Mexican. Make lots of chocolate chip cookies. I want to eat Chili.
I want to go to Michael´s and get lost looking at all the Scrapbooking stuff.
I want to go to Lifeway and get lots of Christian books, movies and music for the girls.
Kayla just wants to go to children church, Patch the Pirate and Sunday School with other kids.
Kayla and Nicole want to go to Chucky Cheeses (sp?) with their cousin Ally.
Noelia wants to go to Grandpa´s big swimming pool
I want to go to my favourite clothing stores without feeling sick looking at the price tags and not going crazy looking for my size.
I am for sure buying the girls winter clothes there if I can find them.
Most of all we want to take a break, a little vacation. A time to step back so we can go forward even stronger.
We are so going to enjoy this time!
Oh yeah and... I am so not eating grits :)
