We are not particularly spontaneous people, definitely more the making-plans-and-sticking-to-them types. But on Saturday night we did buy plane tickets to go to Denmark this coming Thursday for a couple of weeks. That's about as spontaneous as we get!
The reality is that Kristoffer's grandmother, Grace and Noah's sweet Oldemor, is very sick and probably doesn't have so much time left. We have been thinking that we would go to Denmark for her funeral when she passes away, but decided that we would actually rather see her again and spend some more time with her instead. So off we go, and of course it will be a sad trip in many ways. But there will also be things to celebrate, like Hans turning 70 years old and Josefine and Nikoline having a joint birthday party while we are there. Legoland is still open this month so we've promised a fun day there for Grace and Noah as well. It won't be all sad, at least. And I would say we are all ready for a healthy dose of time off the continent. I think it will be good for all of us.
Grace and Noah have been packing since we told them on Sunday, and Noah keeps saying that we are MOVING to Denmark. Hope he doesn't get too disappointed when we come back to Dar :)
Wish us safe and easy international travel on Thursday night, and I'm sure I'll be blogging on the other side.
