Blog2018 ≫ Told the boys about the holiday

Word is out now, we're off to the USA and Mexico next year. Clare did them a quiz and the initial letters of the answers spelled out ORLANDO and MEXICO. Took them a while to get the implications, even when handed an itinerary of where we were going. It had not sunk in until the talk of long flights, then suddenly... WE CAN TAKE THE NINTENDO SWITCH ON AN AEROPLANE!!! Then they were excited.

It will properly sink in, they will get it.

I got them new flags to sew onto their backpacks, though not until we've actually been. Got a Mexico flag for me too, I think that will be my twenty-first country.
