We are sitting in O'Hare waiting for our next flight. This one takes us to Frankfurt, Germany. We decided before we left on this trip that I would take charge of getting us through the airports. Especially since Todd will not be going on the 3rd trip. This is very good for me because it is so easy to be dependent on him and just go along for the ride. He usually has everything under control and I just follow him around. So we land in O'Hare and it is up to me to find our next concourse. Oh brother! We started walking and I had no idea where I was going, except to leave the current concourse. I couldn't find a map or anything. I was getting pretty close to tears. Of course it didn't help that every time I looked at Todd he had a goofy grin on his face. He was enjoying this a lot! It finally hit me to check our next boarding passes (brilliant - I know!) I still couldn't figure it out!! Finally, with tears welling up in my eyes, I desperately asked a pilot for help:). Bingo! He gave me directions to the concourse! Success !!!! So for now we wait until our flight takes off at 6:30p. We decided to eat our last Americanized meal at McDonald's......I can hear all my health conscious friends and family groaning already!

As a side note, we would have never gotten out the door today without the help of our family. It has been so hectic the last few weeks. I have the best babysitters and helpers around! Thanks so much for all the help!!!!
