We've decided (I think--still haven't booked tickets) that we are going to go to Antwerp between Christmas and New Year's this winter. YAY! Yeah, it'll be dark, it'll be blustery, we'll be jet-lagged and all that good stuff, BUT we miss it too much not to take advantage of the chance to get there.
Fares look best from Newark to Brussels on 12/27, and then we'd fly back probably January 3rd, and the girls would go back to school the next Monday. They will miss a couple of days of school, but we think it's worth it.
Hoping to see friends we met through the girls' school, also Mr. K and his wife (of course) and we can visit friends in The Netherlands, also perhaps do an overnight (Cologne?).
