My babies are coming home!!!! YEAH!!!! So its only been two weeks, I missed them so. So much so that I'm riding along with their dad to pick them up. Yup, I'm playing hookie from Spanish and taking a little road-trip. Also gonna miss kickboxing, but we're not really on friendly terms right now. (That class is more work than all my academics together, but its good for my health, so I'll suck it up.)
Now during our little jaunt we're going to make a little stop in Cincinnati, OH and check out the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center. I'm so excited about it, and actually had it not been for this stop, I would have stayed for class and waited until the evening to see my beautiful children. However I have missed out on all the "good stuff" with the girls this summer, and I want to share at least one thing with them. To see their faces, (well at least the oldest ones) as they experience that, will be priceless.
I love history, and the fact that my kids like it, makes it even better for me. Two years ago we took the girls on a trip to Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, PA and New York City, because Pooh wanted to see the Liberty Bell. They had talked about it in Kindergarten and she wanted to see "it". Well we had to indulge, so that was our family trip, we did the museums, which they LOVED, and went to the Statue of Liberty, which was super cool too because they got to talk to the Park Ranger and get some history on "the Lady". Oh yeah, you can't do Liberty Island and not do Ellis. We had a fantastic time, and have lots of tales to tell from it.
Back to the really good stuff though: MY GIRLS ARE COMING HOME!!!!
I like quiet, I really do, but the sounds of my girls is music to my ears.
Oh yeah and not to lose the historical tie-in: were it not for The Underground Railroad, The Emancipation Proclamation, and several Constitutional amendments, I might not be able to celebrate this wonderful holiday we have coming up, so everybody have a great 4th of July weekend, be safe and
