We are getting ready to go on vacation. I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment trying to get everything squared away. We are going to be gone about a week and a half, so that's a lot of packing. Emily's medical bracelets came today, so I'm glad we will have those before we leave.

We are going on a cruise. The girls are SO excited. Since tree nuts are relatively easy to avoid, I'm not too worried about the food. We won't let her eat/drink anything on the islands. There is medical staff on board, so it's comforting to know there is a doctor and facilities right there, just in case something were to happen. Not to mention the 4 EpiPens we will be bringing along with us.

The sad thing is that when we get back, there will only be one full week before school starts again. Where did this Summer go????

Yay, a cruise! How fun! That is so awesome and sounds like such a great vacation for parents and kids.

You are right, summer is flying by. Seems like school starts mighty early though, huh? Where I grew up, it never started until after Labor day - but we went until the end of June, which was the worst.

Have a great time!
