Bon Voyage!

Kyle, Bill and Mimi are getting ready to board their plane and begin the first leg of their journey to Germany. A quick flight to Chicago and then 10 hours on the next flight to Berlin. When you ask Kyle if he is excited he tells me, " he can't believe it is happening." I got him a beautiful journal to record the highlights of the trip. I can't wait to see what he writes!
I admit last night when reading through the travel guide books, I am jealous of all the fun they will have. I was invited to go but I am not ready to leave all the kids and have Bill and I overseas. Couple more years and I will be better with that idea. By then hopefully Ethan will be ready to tackle another long plane ride, Hawaii is still fresh in his mind (mine too for that matter!), and we will all go.
Having grown up spending the summers in California with my Grandma I am so excited for Kyle to have a trip with his Mimi and Dad. I know the trip itself will be beyond memorable but having it just be the three of them will make it all the more special.
Time permitting Kyle may post some pictures here to share otherwise I am sure there will be much to share when he returns.
Have a very safe tip my beloved boys! Good luck on your presentation Bill, I know you will do great!

I'm hoping Kyle learns something about wars and military, and all that stuff he's interested in.

I'm STILL looking for your Great Grandpa's medals. I KNOW Uncle Dave has them "somewhere" it's just a matter of "WHERE???"!!!

Have a great trip, and take lots of pictures and notes!
