Graduation for our 8th grader was beautiful and touching. The weather was perfect and everyone enjoyed the evening. We were so proud of our little boy who has grown quite big.
Now it is on to organizing and packing for a mother-son trip to London, Rome and Venice. We have two weeks to explore and are trying to pack everything for the trip in a small carry on.
On my last trip to London, I had two huge suitcases for five days. I took several pairs of boots, shoes and many changes of clothing. It was snowy and cold and beautiful...but an entirely different trip.
This down-sized travel is going to be a challenge, but it's better than checking luggage and hauling it around. We get to spend about 4 days in London and Rome, and 3 in Venice, so less luggage should also mean less stuff to keep track of.
We are travelling with our very good friends. We have travelled together many times before, and we are all looking forward to spending time together.
Two moms, two teenagers and an exciting itinerary. Stay tuned...
