What's Your Italy?

Most parents of special needs kids have read Welcome to Holland. I typically write on this blog about what we are doing in the area of academics and life, but while doing the dishes I was thinking about friends who are going to Italy this summer with their kids. I can't imagine getting on a plane to go to Florida, let alone Italy, but as in Welcome to Holland, we have our own Italy! This summer we are going to Oscoda and renting a cottage with friends. We are also going to a Joni and Friends Camp! To me, both of these are Italy. They are something I have dreamed of doing for a long time and finally doing. I am looking forward to them with the same expecatation as my friends going to Italy. So...what's YOUR Italy?? And I'm not talking about vacations here only! What is something you are looking forward to...something that may not seem 'big' but are BIG for you and your family. Something you have dreamed of and are doing.. big or smal.

I have 2 Italys. One is Logan going to church camp with the other boys for a week every year. The other one is the Pampered Chef Conference every July. Like Tammy, it is me time! Maybe I'll go to the Charlotte Mason conference too!
