I mentioned to my husband several days ago that maybe we should leave tonight and stay in a hotel about half-way to Miami. I don't really want to leave at 5 AM, and I'm nervous about morning traffic through Jacksonville and Daytona Beach. He said we probably shouldn't get a hotel because of the money. Then, yesterday he mentioned that we probably should get a hotel, and I did. We are staying near Port Canaveral, which, I think, is about half-way to Miami. It is past Jacksonville and Daytona Beach. And, we got the room for a little less than $60. So, we are leaving tonight after the girls are in bed and driving about four hours, so that we will only have about four hours of driving tomorrow morning. I'm VERY excited about our trip, but VERY sad about leaving the girls for a few days.
Speaking of the girls- Allison continues to grow up much to fast. I taught her how to use the computer all by herself, and she is spending some time on starfall.com. I heart that website. She is learning to recognize several words and is learning math facts as well. I think she will be reading before she starts pre-k in August, just like her sister :) Of course, I'm not sure if that is good or bad, since Lauren being so smart has caused some emotional problems over the last couple of years, but it's hard not to be excited and proud.
Yesterday at the grocery store, she had my phone so she could delete items off my list after I got them. I use the memopad feature on the phone for my list because I can add things as I think of them, and I never leave my list at home. I told her to delete dog food, and she said the cursor wasn't at the right place. I asked her how she knew, and she said because you spell dog d-o-g. Sniff, sniff, my baby's growing up too too too fast!
