We took an excellent fast 28-hour journey to Wilkes-Barre, PA for my buddy Jamie’s mother’s funeral a couple of weeks in the past. When you comply with me on Instagram, you’ve heard components of our loopy journey expertise, however because it sparked so many conversations and messages on-line, I assumed we should always share the entire thing collectively on this week’s podcast episode! (See extra footage from our journey right here.)
A couple of takeaways from our journey:
::We by no means bought the chance to fulfill Jamie’s mother, nevertheless it was so particular to listen to household and pals share about how she impacted their lives. It was such a reminder to speculate our lives in what issues and to not take any relationship as a right.
::You should definitely double examine dates earlier than reserving flights. Ahem. Additionally, double-check the deal with to your lodge. And eventually, double-check that you’ve got your photograph ID. Hearken to the episode for extra particulars on all that. 🙂
::Flying with a two-year-old isn’t boring. Kierstyn and Micah each did nicely on the flights and the two-hour drive from Philly to Wilkes-Barre and again, however Okay was fairly assured in her navigational expertise on the airport and we rapidly realized we wanted to push her within the stroller lest she dart forward of us and get misplaced in a crowd! Additionally: I don’t know how mother and father journey by themselves with a toddler and a child. We felt like we had been barely pulling it off and there have been two adults!
::Wilkes-Barre is just not pronounced like I anticipated. However the locals can’t appear to agree on the right pronunciation.
::It was our first time for each of us to go away D. We missed him a lot and might’t wait till he’s adopted and we don’t need to have prior written approval from DCS for him to journey! However our older three youngsters did an incredible job watching him.
On this episode, we even have an adoption replace to share, I discuss a ebook I’m tremendous enthusiastic about, and we snigger about current antics of our toddlers.
