Greetings from the Air

Greetings from thousands of feet in the air.

Yes, this Ds mama is flying to Cabo with some of her closest Ds mama friends from the Sisterhood.

Running at full speed day in and day out with 5 kids -- one teen, one tween, one redhead, one with Ds and one toddler.. Not to mention the dog, the cat, the fish and the husband. I'm very blessed, to be sure, but I haven't had a true break, a real respite, in many, many years and it's well-deserved.

Joining me are Lisa, Jen, Debbie, Irma, Gina and Laura Beth.

5 DAYS!!!!

So, pardon the shift in posts. I'm coming from a different place, literally and figuratively.

I will miss my family terribly, I'm sure, but for now, I look forward to the adventure which lies ahead...

Watching out for little brother...

John Michael really took Luke under his wing yesterday while Doug and I were looking at stones for a retaining wall in our backyard. 

Completely unprompted, he took Luke by the hand and began walking with him toward the gardens.

Luke loves John Michael ("Mah-ker" as Luke calls him) and it's mutual.

I would LOVE to know what John Michael is explaining to Luke...

and Luke replying...

Two peas in a pod, separated by 2 1/2 years, but bonded for life.
