I have a bluetooth speaker connected to my phone so when I play music my class rotates. One down fall of this system is if anyone text's (or calls) during that 90 minute period, the entire class hears it. AND if you know anything about 7 years olds, if they hear a random ding, they are filled with curiouslity, and 27 little voices start asking "what was that?"
This was less than a 5 second distraction, but resulted in 3 minutes of all the students telling me (and each other) their mom/grandma/sister/cousin has the same ring or phone or hair cut.
Well there is was,"Got your date!!!!" Written in black with a gray bubbled background on my phone screen.
It is actually happening. It is like the one question that everyone asks me now and I never have an answer, but now I do.
Last night, Adam asked how are you feeling, and I started to cry.
What is wrong with me???? I am suppose to feel excited. Through this entire process, I have felt peace with this part. Money always worried me but 21 hours on a plane without kids seemed like pure bliss. Just me, Rachel, Ross, Joey, Chandler, Monica and Phoebe. What mom wouldn't love that? So why am I being such a baby?
Then it hit me. I will be gone for 10 days not just 21 hours. I will be gone over Easter.
The Easter bunny is going to come and I am going to miss it. I will miss them dressing up for church.
I have never left my kids for more that a quick weekend trip. I am always there to pick them up, to kiss their booboos, to find their kiki's.
I have prayed over this last month that I don't miss the girls birthdays, (which falls 3 weeks apart). I have prayed that I don't miss Adam and my wedding anniversary, (which is inbetween the girls birthday on March 28th) and God has totally answered my prayers.

|Lily's birthday last year|
Blessings, right? So be grateful!
"I am coming! I will be in Ukraine on March--- but won't be able to visit you until April ---!"
"well we'll see you soon"
