Going to keep this one short as I’m preparing to spend Thanksgiving with my family. It will be the first time my youngest will have Thanksgiving with my immediate family. We had always gone to my ex-wife’s family for the holiday not for any selfish reason on her part, just the way we had worked out holiday visits over the year.
The trip here was amazing. 13 hours in the car with 3 kids and they did great. Thank goodness for the DVD player, the i-phone and the Nook tablet. Not a nap was taken the entire trip I might add.
It’s an interesting time in my life and every step is a new one including holidays without a wife by my side. So many mixed emotions, but you simply acknowledge and move on I guess. All I can do is prepare myself to be ready to adjust and be a positive for the kids. So far, they’re doing great and are enjoying time with Nana and Papa and their aunts and uncles.
Looking forward to a great day tomorrow. So much to be thankful for.
Will catch up again as we prepare for our next adventure; the trip back!
