My dad( mike ) probably told you a story about (me one night saying its crazy how people trade time for money. )Well that is true I know I know you guys are like how can a 9 year old say some thing like that. I did not really think that I would go around the world for a year I mean how is a 9 year old supposed expect something like that.

This is Mike...
Some of you have heard about the crazy dreams Elise and I are having leading up to the departure date. My weird dreams are of me losing hair, in many versions, by the handful. I sometime wake up laughing and other times I wake up tripped out. I decided to Google what losing hair symbolizes and here is the response.
To dream that you are losing your hair denotes that you are concerned with the notion that you are getting older and losing your sex appeal and virility. You are preoccupied with aging and your appearance.  Losing your hair also signifies a lack of strength; you do not have the power to succeed in an undertaking. You may be feeling weak and vulnerable.

This sucks...

At least I am not alone, Elise is dreaming about losing her teeth. Can you imagine us in our dreams? A middle aged man with clumping baldness, like a pet bird with no breast feathers and my lovely almost toothless vagabond looking wife... Now that is a sight for sore eyes.
We still think it is important to add all that we are feeling even if it is less flattering.    

Losing your teeth could be an indication that your stress and anxiety levels could be to high in your life right now and needs to be fixed.  These types of dreams can be somewhat tricky to translate because you might have to face aspect of yourself you could be ignoring.
*Attachment Issues (trying to hold on to something)
*Fear of letting go to something that was part of your life for a long time.
*Afraid of failing
*You dread the feeling of embarrassment
*You may feel a lack of control in your relationship
* Is it possible you set your goals to high and they are crashing down
*What are you afraid to loose
*Are you trying to cover up something
*Afraid of losing your money or the feeling of being abandoned.

This is funny Sh_t, no?
Hopefully these bazaar dreams subside soon or I will look like this guy soon ;)

The Decision to finally go for it

Last year when we returned from Costa Rica, we felt like there was something that we were missing. We had a challenging summer and realized happiness needs to be included in our decision making, not a bi-product of our actions. As Sierra said, "in the end, time is all we have together." When we look at these pictures we see serenity and joy. We are hoping this next trip leads to more of that.        

It is going to be hard leaving the neighborhood for this trip. We are going to miss y'all and the fun times we shared. It is Mid-January and the time is rolling by so quickly, now only 1 month till I leave in the 4 Runner to pick up the girls in Cancun.
