After planning for so long-tomorrow we leave for Ireland. Our daughter Shannon is graduating from NUI in Galway with her MA in Social Work and the whole family (or almost everyone) is going to be there to help her celebrate. Our daughter Melissa is flying in from Seattle to join us on our flight, Shannon, her mother Kathy, our granddaughter Madison, our sister Charlotte, our brother Mike and his wife Lori, Garry and myself will spend 4 days together exploring the sights in around Galway before the graduation on Tuesday. On Wednesday, the 24th, everone will part some going home to St. Charles, MO and others on to explore other parts of Europe. Garry, Melissa and I will be travelling on to Dublin and then to London for a few days before Melissa returns to Seattle on the 29th.
