Ok so actually we are driving but I feel like we could skip we are so excited. My mom is coming to visit for a few days over the holiday and we pick her up in less than four hours. I am not sure who is more excited, my mom, the kids, or me. Tears spring to my eyes when I think about how excited I am to see her and how much I have missed her.
I have not seen my mom since Christmas. I think that living so far from family has been the hardest part of the last four years. We never went longer than a couple weeks without seeing our parents or siblings and now we go at least 3 months at a time sometimes longer.
My mom has come to visit us here in PA at least once a year for the past four years. It is so surreal to realize that this is her last visit here because we are moving back to KS! If you had asked me four years ago if my mom would get on a plane by herself and fly to PA I would have said no way. I totally underestimated the power of grandkids.
Not much longer till we get to see her and this trip the goodbye when she leaves will be less bitter because we know exactly when we will see her again!
