I'm meeting my uncle, his wife and 11yo son at the harbor in the morning WITH my 3 difficult child's to catch a boat over to Catalina Island for the day. The kids have NEVER been on a boat this size before (it's a high-speed catamaran), nor have they ever been to this place. Heck, the last time I was there was before I was married! I HOPE this day goes o.k. At least there will be two other adults there with me if difficult child 2 has any problems with his behavior. I'm not so worried about my other two. husband can't make it because of work. We plan to let the kids go swimming and snorkeling, have a picinic lunch, probably wander around the little town there and then head back in the late afternoon. Please pray to the difficult child-gods that all goes well!
