The five of us are now officially on holiday. It was the last day of school today for the older two (Number One Son and Miss Mucks), The Little Guy is out of kindergarten for a couple of weeks, and Husband and I are on leave.
We set off for the coast early tomorrow morning. The idea is that we leave at 7am. That would take a major miracle. A minor miracle is more likely - we'll get away before 10am! We're packing the car now, the kids are asleep, and we're hoping to get to bed ourselves soon too.
The kids are very very excited; they'll be bickering before we get out of Melbourne no doubt. It's a seven hour drive though ... think of us as we endure "are we there yet?", "Muuuum ... he pinched me!" and, our family motto, "I'm hungry!".
It reminds me of how excited my brother, sister and I were on family holidays involving long drives. And we did long drives - Canberra to Perth, across the country in four days when we were six, four and two ... my poor mother!
See you in a week.
