Waking up in Vegas
For many weeks, you girls have asked what country we are going to visit these summer holidays. As usual, we haven't set a destination yet. We mostly pick out our vacation last minute, like a month in advance. The children like to discuss different countries and options. But in the end, it's us, parents, who decide where we will go. We have seen quite some countries by now, but there are so many left to visit.
Lana is considering a vacation with friends next year. She was talking about going to Bulgaria with a classmate. For a month. One month!! Hello??? She said: it's only 1900 euro! Hello??? Feeling good? I like the idea of her spending some time with a friend abroad, but more in the meaning of staying with a host family as an au pair. That's not what Lana has planned though..
That's not what I had in mind at all. I would like her to do a summerjob next year. She'll be 16 then. Time to make some money of her own. We'll see how she feels about 1900 euro then..
