Doing the right thing for our girls!

We have taken the first step…we booked our one-way flights to Paris! This is a dream of a lifetime and we are getting ready to embark on our 7 month European adventure.  There is a ton of planning involved and it has kept me up at nights, but it is just my mind working overtime, trying to think it all through.  I really want to make sure that we are doing the right thing for our daughters.  I believe that they are at the perfect age (8 and 10) to take such an adventure.  I hope that this trip will spark in them a lifetime of traveling and adventure.  The world is getting smaller and I want them to be comfortable in it, wherever they happen to be.

We thought it might be a good idea to have them make a pro/con list so they can really think about what we are heading off to do.  Here are the results:

I know they really are not going to get the whole scope of things it until after we get there.  So, time will tell, but what a life changing time it will be for them and for us.  The lessons they will learn on the road will hopefully stay with them their whole lives.  I do really hope we will meet some families and that my girls will have a chance to make some friends.  I will have to work on that one…  Anyway, I just want the best chance for my children, as I know everyone does, and I just think this is going to be an absolutely wonderful experience.
