We Heart Mickey
The long-awaited vacation has finally arrived. The Nichols family of four is off on a "life-changing journey" (Sav). The Year Of A Million Dreams awaits. When questioned as to what he is looking forward to most Mack stated, "I want to build a light saber and I want to go right now." As you can tell, being 21 hours from liftoff has made some of the younger Nichols a bit edgy. Their mother, however, sits in the middle of a large mess, with clean clothes strewn everywhere, and bags on tops of beds, half loaded because the really important clothes are still in the laundry. This may be hard to believe but my children were asked days ago to bring all the laundry to me in preparation for the big trip. And yet a very large pile still sits in the corner of my son's room.
The children don't seem to understand the work that needs to be done before they can leave, as they roll their eyes when their father asks them to clean this, vacuum that, etc.
All of this strife will soon be forgotten as we enter the Magic Kingdom, make company with pirates, find Nemo, fly with Dumbo, become jedi masters, get terrorized by a tower, and see dead people. We will not, however, be able to discover that It's A Small World afterall (closed).
