Wish and Dream...and do it BIG!!!

Let me just say that I am in desperate need of a "real" vacation. One without doctor's appointments and procedures. One where we can escape from the real world for a short time and enjoy our family with no worries. It has been over three years since we have been able to enjoy a relaxing vacation with our children...and poor little Abigail has never been on vacation. Not that she would remember anyway, but Ross and I would. Please do not view this as complaining because we have been able (with the Lord's help...and most likely yours) to pay for our medical trips to Cincinnati and other medical expenses that have accumulated throughout the year. Without the continued support, Ross and Abigail wouldn't be getting better; and our continued trips to Cincy wouldn't be possible. I cannot afford to trade that for a vacation nor would I want to! It would just be nice to have a little break. Vacation or a weekend away with my kids??? Humm...I don't know which would be better! ;) Ha! Sometimes that's nice too, and I can't remember when...oh wait; yes I can. We haven't had a weekend without kids since we have had kids! :) What?! If I'm gonna wish and dream I might as well wish and dream big! Right? I declare this wish and dream day. But...if you are going to do it, do it BIG!!!

If you can find someone to take the kids, we have an amazing lake house in north Texas just a 5 hour and 20 minutes drive from Siloam. People use it for a free vacation all the time. If you can find a couple of days without the kids let me know. I know we really don't know each other very well but tons of people use the lake house it's really no big deal. Chad & Amy Mann have been there and they can tell you it's a great get away. So think it over and start begging people to watch your kiddos for a night or two! Or bring some help there is plenty of room 7 bedrooms 6 baths.

Thanks Heather, for the tremendous offer! Unfortunately, we don't feel comfortable leaving Abigail more than 2-3 hours away in case there was an issue that arises. Thank you so much though!
