|I'm excited to see what those skeleton keys open.|
I have read a lot of information on flying with toddlers. What to bring on-board, where to sit, etc. I even read a book about traveling with kids*, and one of my favorite lines was, "It’s not always going to be good but it’s always going to be worth it." That may even apply for our whole time in Sweden, but the flight over is the part I fear the most. Ever tried to sleep on a trans-atlantic and there were littles who thought it was playtime? Or just wanted their comfy bed at home? I always feel bad for the parents because they're stressed out even if they're not getting evil stares from fellow passengers. Now we're going to be those parents. And as tempting as it sounds, we are not going to drug our children. It's hard to imagine Bowen being Olivia's age when we return, so I can't wait to compare the trip over vs. the trip back to the States.

So if you wake up in the middle of the night March 2-3, please pray for us. Steve says it will be one long, terrible night and then it will be over. And then we'll take naps.
