Before we knew it, the girls had packed their few belongings (an outfit, photo books, etc.) in our backpacks.  They were ready to leave!!Solomon was not too sure about the whole experience!!  He cried the majority of the van ride over to a hotel and it took him a bit to settle down.  Now, he only wants to be held.  We LOVE, LOVE our kids!!  God has BLESSED us with precious gifts from above.
