    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!
