    Default And She's Off

    I am happy and sad... My baby girl left for her european adventure a few hours ago and I hope and pray she has a fantastic trip. I am so happy for the experience she will have but I am sad as this is the furthest she has ever been away from home Where we couldn't just drive to pick her up if need be. The trip started off with a lovely 45 minute flight delay for no apparent reason other than the FAA enforcing ground holds because of the antiquated systems in place.

    I asked her to periodically wave to our EBN family along the way as they are traveling up and over the North Atlantic on their journey. Not like anyone will see her flying by at 37,000ft cruising at 609 mph but you will feel the love none the less. Right now she is over south eastern Canada and will be flying over New Brunswick in about 30 minutes or so.

    Being the daddy and tech junkie that I am I have been tracking the flight since the originating flight out of Amsterdam last night so I get updates roughly every 15 minutes or so... lol. However, I made the mistake of showing my wife the flight map and they just happened to be flying through some storms right now so she is freaked out a bit about that and she can't get Non-Stop or Taken out of her head..

    Todd, you and your wife are giving your daughter a memory she will cherish forever. It sounds like you have great, smart kids. That is quite an accomplishment in this day and age. Good for you guys!

    Thank you for the kind words. She is a good kid that has been through a lot in her short 15 years that this will do her a lot of good and give her a chance to grow.

    oh that's wonderful, she is lucky she has such good parents that can let her go. I can just picture you at the computer watching her flights and missing her.

    Been watching the flight since it left Amsterdam last night to fly to Houston and I get updates on my phones. Just a crazy daddy. lol

    I hope she enjoys it because she has been invited to the trip next summer as well but she doesn't want to go if she doesn't have fun on this one.

    I'm so excited for your daughter, Todd!! Travel is truly a gift and something she will keep with her all her life. Wow, at 15 years of age and going to Italy and Greece...she's going to have a WONDERFUL time, I'm sure.

    I was wondering why Finn and Tate were waving their paws and looking up at the sky a couple hours ago...they must've been saying to your daughter!

    I'm bet she does enjoy it unless she gets too homesick for you and your wife. Italy I have always wanted to go too and Greece is suppose to be so beautiful and the weather should be nice there now as well.
