Leavin' on a jet plane

Tomorrow, I will travel hundreds of miles to meet this little guy. I am so excited, as I haven't been to Monica's house for more than two years! I am anxious, however, both for the flights (I've flown a lot but always get nervous!) and because I am leaving my own little guy at home. Would you please say a little prayer for me on Friday? I'd greatly appreciate it. I'll try to post at least once while I'm gone, plus I'm sure Monica and I will cook up some fun idea while we're together! Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!

Yay! And hopefully the two of you will be posting lots of fun things that you come up with!

Have a safe flight...trips without the kids are wonderful and terrible all at the same time. : )

What fun! Enjoy your new little nephew! (and nieces, too, of course!) ;) I will pray for you. It's always hard to leave the little ones at home...probably harder on mom than on the little one! :) But, it will free you up to be a huge blessing to your sister, too!

How neat that you get to go see Monica. Have a great trip.

Have safe travels. I am in awe of you leaving the little one. I still haven't done that for more than a day! lol

We leave tomorrow for vacation. I left two Irish recipes for you. Make the tea cake to take to the family- you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.

I never worried about flying until after I had kids, but I always get better once I actually leave. I worry before I go! I will say a prayer for you.

I know you will have a wonderful time! I can't wait to see pictures!

Hi Carrie:

I've already been praying for your safety on your flights to S.C. and for a FUN time with Monica & the kiddos. It'll be SO great to meet your new little nephew and to see the girls again, but at the same time I know you will miss Nathan (and Eric!)
Just know that he is good hands with his Grandma and Daddy. And yes, God will be with all of you.

Give everyone a hug from Nana.

Love you, Grandma

I hope you and your sister have a sweet visit! I understand how you feel leaving your little one. The reunion will be all the more delightful and he will look like he grew a foot:~)

I will keep you in my prayers.

What a bittersweet time for you ~ leaving your own darling little one for a few days to see your dear sister and her three sweet little ones. You will definitely be in our prayers ~ for safe travel (and may your luggage arrive when you do!) and that the change of pace/scenery will be refreshing for you so that when you return home, you'll have renewed energy for your responsibilities there. Love you! Mom

My sister had a baby a week ago. I, like you, am hundreds of miles away. I'm glad you can go and I'm sure she'll be so happy to see you there.

Leanne said...

Carrie,
Enjoy your time with your sister and little Samuel. I can't wait to read what you all have to post about this weekend. When I hear about the closeness you share, I hope that we have another girl so Love Bug has the sister that I never had. I will pray for you!
Abbey :-)
