Bitter Sweet Goodbyes

Well it is official. We are childless for the next 17 days. While we are excited to be leaving for our mission trip tomorrow we are a little sad that it will be a while before we see the kids again. On top of leaving them today Noah has the stomach flu. He is currently at my sister's house throwing up. This tends to be a family tradition when you visit Aunt April. In fact while Noah was throwing up on the way (he started throwing up half way to my sisters) Kayla said "well Noah you are officially a Milner because you have thrown up while driving to Aunt April's." They live about 6 hours away so it was a long trip. I am sad but there is nothing we could do.

We are getting excited and are almost ready to leave. I still can't believe that we will be on a plane for more than 20 hours total. Well I have to get going so I will have to post more when we get back.

I just cannot fathom being away from the kids that long...I will be praying for you! I know it will be hard/difficult, but at the same time, I know you will be blessed on the trip! I hope you have a very safe flight and that the time just zips by on your way so you can begin your missions!
