We are now just a phone call away from our travel dates!! Our dossier was submitted exactly one week ago and now begins the waiting game. The only thing that keeps me going (besides my 5 kiddos) is realizing that in just a couple weeks Olivia will be in my arms. Lee and I are starting to pack and it's crazy to think that we will be trading in our short sleeves and flip flops for parkas and snow boots:) To tell you the truth it's really exciting! It's been 15 years since we've been away together ALONE!!! I'm not quite sure how I am actually going to leave my kids. I can't even go there yet. I know that it will much harder for me than it will be for them so please say a prayer or two for me. My amazing sister, Colleen and her family are ready to drop their lives in the Bay Area step into ours and that puts so much peace in my heart. My babies LOVE Teen (Aunt Colleen) and can't wait for the whole Mazzuca family to move in! The big kiddos, I know will be absolutely fine when we leave but my sweet Chloe? Oh, lordy, now I'm crying... What will Chloe do without me? Forget that, What will I do without Chloe???? I can't even imagine waking up and not having her next to me....Okay enough, enough, enough.... I mean who wouldn't miss this girl like mad?
