We miss Marco ridiculously, but can FaceTime with him everyday, which makes things manageable.
We are so thankful for him though and all the work he's doing out at sea.
Luca and I arrived in Baltimore much earlier than expected because of a discounted flight from Venice to Baltimore via Toronto that ended its promotion after the 25th of June, so we jumped on it, and arrived in Baltimore after a very long and bumpy, thanks to turbulence, not Luca flight. Luca on the other hand was, as usual a rockstar flyer. I am not trying to brag, I am not trying to make anyone feel bad, I am just saying how it is. 9 hour flight, plus 2 hour layover, plus another hour, bumpy as hell flight in a 20 passenger airplane with a toddler? no problem. Besides the fact that I don't do turbulence, but when I am scared shitless and feel like I'm going to vom. well, when your a mom you have to pretend you are 100% ok, even in a tin can of a plane, bouncing around for an hour. Luca thought it was hilarious. Dear lord. Never again. Sorry, Air Canada, don't take it personally.
Anyway we have been summer blissin around for a little over a month now. Marco will be coming the end of September to join us at my sweet friends wedding in Santa Fe NM. Luca Marco and I then will leave after the wedding to go back to Italy mid October. (it didn't make sense for Luc and I to go back to Italy the beginning of September, just t leave again after 3 weeks of Luca in school... So luca has an extra month of summer vacation before he starts school. School? no I cannot use that word. its too early, he's to small!
its okay I still have plenty of time to wrap my mind around it, right?
a presto, I'll get you posted soon
