She arrived!

We got Christy off to Germany yesterday, and she just called to say she had arrived fine in Berlin and was on her way to her hostel. To say that the weekend was uneventful would be an understatement! A good bit of Saturday was spent worrying about her debit card and if there were problems with it, but after some investigating by the bank, hopefully the problem was just British Airways! Then yesterday, Carl and I left home at 8:00am to take her to the airport in Dayton - we arrived home 8 hours later and she was finally off to JFK. Chicago was closed right before her plane was to take off (thankfully it hadn't left yet), and there were lots of problems getting her rebooked - finally we got her on a flight to JFK from Cincinnati instead of Dayton, so we had to retrieve her luggage and make an hour and a half dash from one airport to the other, but we made it on time, and that flight took off as scheduled. In case anyone is interested she has set up a blog to share her adventures - Feel free to check it out, and leave her comments. So now we begin the countdown until the rest of the family joins her for a 2 week adventure!

Well, here I am! A member of the blogging world. As you can see, this is still a work in progress, but I am hoping to use this blog to share parts of my life with friends and family. Everything from family news to my most recent creations for my scrapbooks or cards I've made. You might even find recipes on here that I've tried and loved. A little bit of everything. So, bear with me while I learn how to do this. I'll start off my sharing with a family photo from a few weeks ago at Laurel and Mike's wedding. We don't do this often enough, so I'm really happy with this one.

We're busy getting Christy ready for her trip to Germany where she will be studying in Luneburg for 5 weeks. Then Carl, Sean, and I are going over to meet her and traveling around for 13 days. I can't wait! It's like the trip of a lifetime to be able to do this with my kids before they get out of college and are out on their own.
