One of my best friends in high school was a foreign exchange student from Germany. This year she is getting married so Jim and I thought it would be the perfect time to go. Jim and I spent a week catching up with a dear friend, sight seeing around western Germany, and learning about a culture different than our own.
Our son Seth stayed with his Grandma and Grandpa during this week. He went to a White Sox game, two different birthday parties, played with friends and was spoiled by family members. We missed him so much but we made sure to FaceTime him daily and share our daily experiences with each other.
This trip was a rare opportunity for us for a special situation. Our next planned vacation is Disney World where the entire family and extended family can partipate and not be seperated.
