Tomorrow morning we will get up at 3:30 to begin our great adventure. Ernie will drop me off at Kari and Mike's house, and he'll pick them up and head to the airport where they will board a place for Washington DC. Not Ernie! He'd best be coming back to help me with the kids! We will be in charge of three of their kids from Sunday until they return on Thursday afternoon. The older three kids all live in town, so if we run into troubles, we will call them for help! But I'm sure things will go well. Adam is 14, a freshman in high school, a new cell phone owner, and we've lived with him before so I doubt we'll have any problems. (He spent the summer with us in Alaska in 2006.) Ben is 11 and is the resident computer genius so I expect he'll be helpful to have around. And Anna is 7, and is......well, Anna is Anna! And I love her dearly. We are going to have a great time!

But if that plane is late coming home on Thursday, you may hear me screaming!

Good luck, Mom! We're at the airport in Milwaukee waiting for our connecting flight to DC. We had a very BUMPY ride here. I'm glad it's over. Hope the kids behave...or at least have a little mercy on you. Thanks again for watching them so we could do this. ~Kari

you GO Grandma :) It will be fine... In my experience the kiddo will behave much better when mom and dad are not there :)
I will be praying and watching for updates!
