HELP! I am currently buried under two over-excited, vacation-driven children! Generally speaking, I think my kids are pretty calm. Sure, they have their loud, explosive moments from time to time, but for the most part they are easy breezy.
One day left before we leave for Myrtle Beach.
Have my kids secretly downed a few bottles of Mountain Dew or Vault or is this just genuine good old fashion childlike excitement for the beach? They are non-stop energy, running from the inside of the house to the outside, playing with everything imaginable and leaving a trail behind wherever they go. They have made plans and promises about what they will play together when they arrive. Abbie's big goal, and prayer request, is that she'll be brave enough to put her head under the water. Stephen can't wait to give his out of shape mom a bike riding tour of the resort. Gotta love those over-sized padded bike seats!
With lots of last minute things to do to get ready - you know, little things like pack for four people - I have not even come close to their level of anticipation. But, if I close my eyes and imagine the van all packed up, the kids fast asleep, and some late night (middle of the night really) conversation with Matt during our long drive, my excitement begins to rise. :)
