3 1/2 years ago this young man had his Confirmation in Denmark:
and we gave him the choice of either "big party big present" or " small party travel". He chose small party and a trip to Japan.
And then we moved to Michigan.....
And killed our savings in the process......
And have not had a chance to give him that trip with a constant cloud of bad conscience hanging over our heads because in our family "you do not make promises you cannot keep".
But finally it seems to happen. The other night we got the tickets booked. Ulrik and Kristian will go over spring break in late March. Just in time for cherry flowers. And since Ulrik won't have any nasty tests coming up immediate after spring break this school year (thank you US school system.....), and since Kristian will have 15 days of vacation next year, it will actually work out quite well.
And since this blogpost is about promises! - here comes another one I had to keep this week. Hint: if you promise you daughter she can get her nostril pierced..... well. This is where you end up.... (and yes, piercing store owners are quite skilled at photo bombing apparently)
