I was totally fine about the Cobbler going to Europe for work for 10 days. Well, I was a little nervous about how the kids would be without him for almost two weeks, but I was still okay until I found out he was staying here first for seven days---
and here for four days (notice the rockin' view out the window in the second photo)---
I wish I could have jumped in his suitcase and come along!
Let's just say there better be some amazing souvenirs come September 29th. ;-)
