First Trip.......WITHOUT OUR DAUGHTER!!!
Tricia is at the airport already. Her flight leaves at 7. I leave later this afternoon for a long weekend in Las Vegas for Uncle Larry's 30th. It hit home at dinner last night that this would be our first extended time away from Sophie. She will be staying with Yaya aka....www.ourlifeasriley.blogspot.com, Uncle Tim and cousins Jack and Mason. We know she will have fun with them over the weekend. Still we wonder what she will be thinking? We have told her that Mommy and Poppa are going for a bit and we tell her, like we always do, Mommy and Poppa always come back. But this is not just school this is 1,800 miles from home. It will be a test for sure. What will she think? Will it be like in VN when we first got her? No.....we know it will be tough, but we will endure, as will she. I guess we will have many phone calls and post videos so she can see us :-) Have fun with the Rileys Sophie! We will miss you and see you Sunday night!
WE LOVE YOU!! Poppa and Mommy
