We are going on a family cruise for TEN whole days. I took leave from work in conjunction with spring break. Today was my last day working until April 22nd. Dan took leave as well. The kiddos will miss a total of just three days of school on this adventure of a lifetime.
We port in genoa. Just a short 3 hour drive from us.
Then off to marseille France
Casablanca, morocco... OMG WE ARE GOING TO AFRICA!!!!
Then back to Italy. I'm nervous and scared at the same time. This trip has cost is quite a bit. It i don't think price matters when it comes to the kids seeing the world and memories. I'd much rather them have an amazing adventure then buy them the newest electronics or shoes. Haha.

It has been so long since I've made a really great updated blog post. I am glad to say that is because we are really enjoying being here. I actually LOVE it here now. We've explored so many wonderful things! And I landed a job at the DoDDs school on post!
I love my job. The kids are all well and I'm really loving life! So we all know what that means... something will come along and screw that up at any given time! HA!
So, Rome and the Zip was the last things I really shared.
