|| flying solo ||

Well, this post was supposed to be up last week.   :)

We decided at the very last minute to let Liesl go with her cousins and aunties and grandma on a little trip.  At first, we were not thrilled with the idea but after mulling it over decided to give it a go.

It was actually perfect timing.  There was a massive pool at the hotel where they stayed and all Liesl has been talking about is "swemming".  I must get her a kiddie pool soon for the farm!!

I had a to-do list a mile long to accomplish without a two year old undoing all the work that has been done in the day.  I realized by Thursday that there was hardly any work for my maid to do!! Ha!  Apparently 75% of her work is cleaning up after Liesl.  I didn't get everything done (still have to paint our bedroom and do office work).  But there was a great deal accomplished and it felt so good.  

Tuesday, we drove through to my sister-in-law's house to pick Liesl up and bring her home on Wednesday.  We just couldn't wait to get her!!

I'm sure this is the start of many more outings with family.  In the future, maybe she'll even fly with her brother to the States to see her grandparents there.
