Yet another countdown has begun

28 days and counting....

It's that time again when we start getting ready for our next vacation out of Nunavut. We are not planning a big trip anywhere this time, we're just going back to our families in New Brunswick and hanging out. I am really looking forward to spending time with my sister and having my boys get time with their cousin Erik. The grandma's of course want their time and let's be honest, I plan to take advantage of that and have some great kid free time. The boys and I are actually leaving 2 weeks before Nick does so we'll get more time to experience southern summer and all that it has to offer. I'm dreading doing the 4 planes rides alone with 2 kids but if I want the extra time it has to be done.

When my mom was here she suggested we make an 'advent calender' of sorts to count down the days till Oliver gets to go on the plane to see Oma. I finally got around to making it today and we started with the first X. I did head it with, 'lets visit Oma' but in the fine print it says, 'And Opa, And Courtney, And Erik, And Grandma, And Meaghan, And Grandpa....' So nobody can think they are not important. Wouldn't want to offend anyone, we love you all.

So let the list making begin!

What a great idea! I should do the same thing for the boys. They are heading to spend a week with my parents while I am in Inuvik and I am bit nervous about it! They have only had one night away from us, ever. And now we are going to send them off for a week. So I need to get them really excited for it.
