Well, he's back!
Benjie flew down to Orlando today and picked up Mr. D from the trip. For my new readers (hi guys!), you can read about the Kids of Courage trip here.
Amazingly, even with the yucky rainy weather here in Chicago (What the heck, by the way-ummm it's AUGUST-not October! This weather is making me want to go plant some mums. Note to self: buy mums for urns in front of house), all the flights went off without a hitch. Benjie only had about one hour between flights, and somehow he managed to get Dovi, check in, and get back on the plane without any craziness. He said that as he was going to security, he saw the INSANE Kids of Courage charter flight private security line. It literally took the charter flight over two hours to get everyone through security-luckily Benjie didn't choose that line-he had a flight to catch!
Dovi arrived with quite a bit of flair at home-he ran in the front door and was bowled over by Shana and Elisha-then I got the hug of a lifetime.
He's been telling us all about the trip-what he did, where he went..who he hung out with... Raphi, Dovi tells us that you have 10 girlfriends. Ahem. Hope you all had fun :)
I've never seen Dovi so contented. This trip was just magical for him. I need to go through his camera and pull out some pictures-unfortunately, in typical Dovi fashion, most of the pictures are either of his knees, Ezra's nose, or Raphi's hair. He's a real photographer, my Dovi. So all my readers (hi, girl counselor whose name Benjie forgot!) who went on the trip, want to email me some pictures to share here? Thanks lots.
Dovi's big ole bag of laundry is started, children are showered. Dovi's back to school tomorrow. Back to life...
Speaking of school, Rach asked me how school is going for me. I've come to a conclusion. I'm a nerd. A big old nerd. Is it pathetic that I am actually enjoying school? I'm sure that my feelings will change, hey, when I'm insanely cramming for my biology final, but I seem to be enjoying myself just a tad. And good news-my biology class does not seem to include dissection. Phew.
As soon as I get pictures from the trip, I'll be sure to share them all with you.
