Happy, sad, excited!

Tomorrow I leave on a trip with a bunch of crazy fun young adults (in training)! We're headed for Tennessee right after service. It should be a fun, crazy trip of river rafting, tubing and just being in the mountains. I'm thrilled to be going with Urban Girl!

My relationship with her is changing. From one of Mom/daughter to Mom/friend and young woman/daughter. I'm glad for these time where I get a chance to slowly ease into our new stage and see her as more than my little girl. I don't mean to say that I don't already get daily glimpses, but this is a blessing.

I will say it's strange to be going and leaving so much of my family behind. They have exciting plans while we are gone and I know Superman can handle just about anything. I mean we don't call him Superman for nothing! But still, I'm the Mommy and I'm used to being in charge of my home. School Girl and I planned fun meals for while we are gone. So I know it's under control.

So all this being said I excited, nervous about rafting (it's been 21 years). But I can't wait to be in the mountains. It's my favorite place to be!

See you when we get back!
