Counting Down The Days Until Grace's Big Trip To Florida!

Every year Bob attends an annual board retreat with his credit union. This year the retreat is in Orlando, Florida. Grace will be coming with us this year and she couldn't be any more excited! Grace is counting down the days until her very first time flying in an airplane and her very first trip down south! Grace made a paper chain today to serve as a visual representation so she can see just how many days are left until the big trip. Each link of the chain represents one day for a total of twenty-four links (we leave for Florida on May 15). Every morning when Grace wakes up she will take one link off of the chain. Over the next few weeks the chain will get shorter and shorter until there is only one link left the day before we leave! Grace cut out all of the paper links herself and taped them together in a purple/yellow color pattern. Grace chose to hang her paper countdown chain from her bedroom ceiling.

Oh, Gracie Girl, we are counting down the days right along with you! We cannot wait to see and hear everything about your trip. And, how wonderful it will be to have you leave from Vermont.
And.....We are going to have Jack stay with us during your time in Flordia!!
Just think of all the new stories we'll have to share with each other for months to come!
Love You So Very Much,
Maddy & Poppy

Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
