If nothing ever changed, there’d be no butterflies. ~Author Unknown
Well – today is the day. We are now just counting down the hours. Are we ready?? No idea! I suppose we are as ready as we’ll ever be. As I type this… the kids’ plane looks like it has just reached North America and in a couple of hours they will be landing in Newark, NJ. At 4:00 this afternoon we will meet them at the gate in Dulles. And then… the fun begins!
This past week I’ve been contemplating time by “the next time we go ____, the kids will be here” or “the next time it is Monday we’ll be at the beach with the kids”… etc. etc. etc. And it occurred to me that I used to do this when we were anticipating a new baby. And, as different as this is… I suppose it is also very similar.
Today the footprint of our family will change once again.
