CHANGE OF PLANS - Christmas 2007

Family,

Originally we were planning to spend Christmas in western Europe, but we have changed our plans. We will now be flying back to Dallas, TX for Christmas. We are departing on December 21, which will either get us back to America on December 20th or December 21 depending on the flights. That's not so bad, it's the schedule leaving America that scares me. We have to leave Dallas on August 23 in order to arrive at our base in Kilimanjaro on late August 25th. That is going to be brutal, but we'll burn that bridge when we get to it.

We decided that spending Christmas in Switzerland would be lots of fun, but would be logistically complicated and very expensive with additional flights and hotels. Christmas in London wouldn't make much sense because we would have already been there for three months anyway and will probably be ready to come home. Big family gatherings over Christmas would be a wonderful welcoming. We should be in early enough that we can sleep for a day to recover before going on Tour de Parents 2007.

Yeah! I am so glad you will be doing the Tour de Parents! Not having you here at Christmas would not be good - especially since you will be leaving shortly thereafter for Boston.

Love,
Mom
