Paper Chain

 Every May Bob attends an annual retreat with the board members of his Credit Union.  This year they are going to Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  Jack and Grace will be coming with us and as Jack says they are both "extremely excited!"  Grace, Jack and Eve all worked together to make this paper chain, which serves as a visual representation of how many days remain until we leave for our trip.  Each link of the chain represents one day.  Every morning Grace, Jack or Eve removes one link from the chain.  We have been watching our paper chain get shorter and shorter over the past few weeks as our trip gets closer and closer.  We will be leaving on May 27th and returning June 2.

I'm "extremely excited" for your family, too!
Love the paper chain countdown idea.
How cute is Jack!

Love, Maddy

What a good way to answer the question, "How many more days?". Jack looks as though he's wishing that the bottom links would disappear and then there would be one (or none). Definitely something great to look forward to.


Got Gracie, Jack & Eve?
