Yes, we're taking a year-long vacation to Baltimore, MD.
My work has provided us the opportunity to move to "the ocean" (or at least that's how we sold it to the children), where I will help in the opening of a regional office and Brandon and the girls will do first grade and pre-K in style. They will take day-trips to DC, Philadelphia and weekend trips to NYC. Or at least that's the plan. [NOTE: We have lived so long without cable its possible they will just lounge on the hotel bed day-after-day soaking in cable television... oh yes, you read correctly - we are living in a hotel for the next twelve months, did I mention this is going to be an adventure?]
But have no fear KC friends, we shall return before you know it for more squelching hot summers and freezing cold winters and the best friends a girl could ask for. It's a short-term adventure, the best type!
We leave in mid-September. Adventure indeed.
