Ann, even if you "split up" into two smaller groups, as long as you do a few things together it should be fun! And I think Kira is a very responsible young lady, so as long as you agree on how many credits are hers, she will run with that. As for the tickets - I am sure it will work out. People fly in on different times, so they should be used to that. It's so fun you are planning to trips right now .... and a few more in the planning stages at the back of your head. I just hope that one day our plans overlap and we get to meet in person!
