So, back to the "if only they knew" story. We have been planning a little weekend vacation for several weeks now. We had planned it at the time we did because we did not want to interfere with end of school performances, etc. We bought our tickets last week and had hotel reservations. Everyone was (and is excited) to get away for a few days. Well, I go to pick up Lauren from school on Monday and her teacher informs me that the dance recital, the one that my dance lover has been talking about all year and the one we had already bought the outfit for, is going to be Friday afternoon. Our tickets to leave are for Friday morning. I have never seen such excitement and such devastation on a 5 years old's face in such a short amount of time. It broke my heart. Needless to say, her daddy loves her more than she will ever know. Jonathan spent teh next day and a half on teh phone trying to do the impossible in our country...change a ticket. But he managed to do the impossible and delay our trip for a day.
