Watch out NY, here we come!

Summer spilled the beans on her blog already! Well, it wasn't going to be long before I was going to, but... ;)

Remember Princess Lyla? Of couse you do! She came home from Ukraine last September, and I watched her 4 siblings while her mama was gone in Ukraine getting her.
{Lyla and I - a few days after she came home}
She has been sick all her life with a heart condition, and she is finally able to having heart surgery she needs to live her life to the fullest (she's been doing a pretty good job already though!).
{Lyla a few days ago}
She is having surgery a couple hours away, and both her parents will be there the first few days, and then her daddy will come home, while her mama stays with her until she gets to come home.

That situation however, leaves a hole for someone to watch her big brothers and sisters at home. And yes, you guessed it, I have been given the amazing opportunity to go and take care of them!!!
{The Fab Five and I - last September}
And!!!! To make it even better, my bestest friend ever, Rachel, is going with me!!! There are only a few things that could make this trip any sweeter!!! [squeal] 
{I love her!}
Flights are booked, and we leave a week from today!!!!

I'm honestly a little stressed out since I didn't know I was going until last week. I think Rach is too a bit, but the excitement is taking over. ;) In addition to packing and getting other things done, we both have a LOT of school to do in the next week.

But, we have such GREAT motivation. I get to see these kiddies again, and she gets to meet them!!! YAY!
