Ethan and I are setting off early tomorrow morning for a week-long visit with my family in New Mexico. We’ll be traveling by air, which Ethan loves. However, traveling with Ethan always presents unique challenges. Hopefully Greg and I have prepared him well enough to handle the changes in routine and any glitches which may arise throughout the trip. With all of the progress he has made in the past 6 months, I have a feeling that this will be our smoothest trip yet.
Ethan and I are both looking forward to spending hours upon hours in my parents’ pool and at least a little bit of time on some of the horses. Sounds pretty great, right? Add to that some of my favorite meals home-cooked by Mom . . . I’m psyched! I may not want to come home.
Wish us luck on the airplanes and handling the airports! Ethan’s bag is packed full of new and interesting activity books, games and toys. I even picked up a copy of Kate Di Camillo‘s The Tale of Despereaux to read aloud. We should be set.
New Mexico or bust . . .
