Tomorrow I'm off with my 8 year old son Connor and my wife Deana to accomplish a goal that he had set as part of his MAGIC Hundred quite some time ago.
We've put it off a little due to being pretty busy but his school is doing a whole bunch of great stuff about the importance of having goals and he's been talking about it again.
So we're taking him out of school a couple of days early this week to make sure that he accomplishes this goal and also so that I accomplish one of mine too (cool when your MAGIC hundred lines up with other people's huh?) : )
...where do you think I'm going?
Take a guess!
P.S - Connor is one of the best travelled and World-experienced 8 year olds I know.
He's snorkled on the great barrier reef, been to Ayers Rock, Kakadu National Park, Cape Tribulation, The Blue Mountains in Australia, Angkor Wat in Cambodia, Hanoi and Hoi An in Vietnam, Elephant Trekking in far Northern Thailand (in fact he's been to Thailand 16 times), he's survived the Tsunami (yes, he was actually IN it!), he's been to the leaning tower of Pisa, The Coliseum in Rome, Monte Carlo, Cannes, all over Spain, Dineyland Florida 3 times...
I can't believe I'm writing about MY kid : )
All of my holidays were in the UK until I was 21!!
Not just 'cos he's my kid, but he's an awesome little by who loves life, loves helping people and has high expectations of what he's going to do, where he's going to visit and the things he's going to experience.
Great lessons for us all :)
Oh, and by the way, he has NO idea that we're taking him anywhere. He thinks he's coming to see me off at the airport for a business trip : )
