We are on the countdown until Mark leaves. It is down to really just one more full day at home. Then he will be gone for 90 days!! *sniff sniff* Steve and I are planning to go see him in Spain in early November, so I will be marking the days off the calendar until then.
I am going to miss him so much. I can't deny that. But I am very excited for him because this is something he has wanted to do for a really long time.
I asked Steve to take our picture together (even if it is the end of a long day and I am exhausted!) Mark said, "All your blog friends are going to think I never wear a shirt!" It is true....he does walk around the house with no shirt on most of the time! haha
We have been packing and making sure he has euros and a credit card and a new backpack and a host gift for the family he is staying with and plenty of underwear and socks and all those important things. Steve bought him the new iTouch today so that he can use it for a camera/video camera and we can even skype on it! I am so thankful for skype! That came along at a perfect time in my life when all my kids are scattered all around the world. There is nothing like not only hearing their voices, but also getting to see their faces!!
I was hoping to be able to stay at home tomorrow since that is Mark's last day, but unfortunately I have to work. Friday I am working in the morning and then I will leave around 11:00 and rush to the airport to give my boy a big hug and kiss and wave goodbye to him as he walks off toward this new adventure.
Please pray for him to have safe travels and a good experience while he is there. He is going to have his own travel blog, so I will show it to you once it is up and running!
Right now I can hear Steve and Mark trying out the skype. One is upstairs and one is downstairs! I need to go see how well it works! Have a great night!
