Hooray for an update! If only you would have picked the week before Thanksgiving, then we could have met up! Oh well, hopefully our trips will overlap some day! I'm jealous that you and Jodi will be there at the same time! I'm so glad that you are staying at the Poly again! I know how much you love it there. And you are going to just love the GF. It is so beautiful, especially at Christmas time! We are taking the girls out of school for our November trip. DD11 will miss 5 days, and my older girls will miss three. Our school district is also good about letting the kids miss school for family vacations. My older girls who are in college have already talked to their professors, and the professors told them to not even worry about missing school. It helps that they are good students and don't usually miss classes. So luckily things all worked out! Family vacations are so important anyways, kids are only young for so long! Loved the update!
