There's just something about reunions that make people nervous, right? We leave in the morning to head to Liberty for homecoming weekend (although we can only stay for the day). We've been saying for 10 years that we were going to be back, and when we found out they were doing a YouthQuest reunion this year, we knew we had to try and make it work. YouthQuest was the ministry team that David and I were on - we actually met on a YQ ministry trip to Ohio. So lots of special people and fun memories. We're really looking forward to reconnecting with some of those people tomorrow.
But that's not why I'm nervous. I'm nervous about the fact that, for the first time, I'm splitting up all 3 of my kids to 3 different homes. Wonderful homes. And I'm so thankful for our special friends that have agreed to take a Schrodt for a day. But I'm a bit nervous. They all lean on each other and I'm used to knowing that they have each other for "help". I know they'll be fine. I'm sure they'll hardly even know we're gone - it's only for one day/night. But it's weird. I remember when my sister and her husband would have to go away for some church staff retreat and they'd leave their 3 kids with 3 different families. Now I'm that mom! I feel like it's a whole different level of parenting! But when all your friends have kids, who wants 3 extras!!! Anyways, I've finished the "insurance permission" letters for everyone and am off to pack bags. We should be all set!!!
