To be 17 and free.....

Pebbles and I had a little secret. It was kept until just the right time, I think. But now it's out in the open. We just put not-so-mini-Peb's on a plane to Greece.

She's headed there for a cruise and island explore, with her best friend and her Latin Teacher. "Mrs. Teacher" has been there several times and will be the best tour guide imaginable for the girls. Both of whom, are fascinated with Greek Mythology and the Olympics. I'm fairly confident, that all three girl's might have an OK time.

Not-so-mini-Peb's has been a stellar student all through High School. Four year's of graduating with Honours, and a grade average over that four year's of 90%. That's pretty significant if you ask me. She's also done an amazing job of balancing school and work, (two different jobs!) in that same timeframe. We figured it was time for a reward.

So now my baby is gone and cruising/island hopping, all throughout Greece and Turkey. She'll be back in a couple of weeks, and I just can't wait to hear all about it. I did have to ask her for one favour before she got on the plane though.

I asked her to try and adhere to grandpa Barney's advice.

"Enjoy the trip, like you're never going to get to go again."

And with a priceless smile, a kiss on the cheek, (in front of people and everything!) and the world's greatest hug, our not-so-baby girls journey began.

I feel like a Million Euros !

My sincerest thanks for dropping by....
