Some tired "puppies"......

Heard from the Cupcake Princess last night. It was great to hear her voice! They had just gotten back to their rooms after an evening at the theater and she and her friends were all wound up. They went to see the Queen musical "We Will Rock You". We only talked a few minutes as it was midnight in London and her theatre director was doing a curfew check and she had to get back to her room. They were going to get up at 4:30 this morning to put their bags on the truck, then go eat breakfast, and then hop on a train around 6:30 to head to Edinburgh. On their quick visit in London, they went to the Globe Theatre with a London actor as their tour guide and had a walk and ride tour of all of the London highlights, to include Buckingham Palace. Bet there were some tired "puppies" on that train this morning. My guess is that it was a quiet ride to Scotland. Looking forward to her next phone call!

What great memories she is going to have. Is she taking pictures for you to post later?
How are you holding up? My 16 yr. old went to South Africa last year. I was very excited for him, but wow how I missed him!

She's taking pictures and her theatre director has just started a blog to keep us back home updated. They've just arrived in Edinburgh for the duration of the trip and he's going to start loading photos soon. Hopefully I'll be able to copy them on to my blog, too. I'm doing ok. Just feel like there's something missing, a bit of a void, and then I realize that it's no mommy duties, no phone ringing off the hook, etc. It's different, but I DO miss her.
