Now we are officially ready for our vacation tomorrow. We are going up to the mountains, and it will be the first time the boys have seen snow. They are SO excited and Micah has talked about it all week. I'm still a little behind on the preparations; I have NO snow jacket for myself, and tried to find one all week long but to no avail. (Well, actually, I found a light blue number at Kmart that was on clearance for $12, but I thought it was so ugly I just could not bring myself to buy it). I'm going to take one of my lighter jackets and hope to find one up there :) I also do not have snow boots for J, but searched over 10 stores looking and finally gave up. I figure if we need them badly, we can get them up there somewhere.
Truthfully, I think it will be hard for me to be without any TV or internet or cell phone service for 3 days. It gets dark early there, and after we put the boys to bed it will be VERY quiet. We're bringing some board games and books, and I plan to study a little for my sermon in 3 weeks. But it is hard to not have noise! Even though I enjoy it, I also get bored quickly. We haven't been away in a long time, though, and we need it. I'm really looking forward to the place we're going, though, because I went to camp there all through high school and early college, and Martin proposed to me there too. It is a place that holds a TON of memories, all of them good and beautiful. They have these cabins that they let ministers use for free, and they are even letting us eat for free! We couldn't pass that up! So, signing off for a few days. When I get back, look for lots of pictures! :)
