Whoooo, yeah! Tonight, we bought plane tickets for me, Mom and Dad to visit Wisconsin for Labor Day weekend! I've been threatening that I was going to get them to come with me (read: take me) for some time now, but tonight we finally actually sat down and planned it out. We found some pretty good prices that coincide almost perfectly with Mom's first day of class, as well as mine. We're leaving on the afternoon of Thursday, 28 August, and coming back on Monday, 1 September. This will fall exactly on the weekend of the big Oshkosh Hmong tournament (annual get-together for thousands of Hmong people from all over the country, where they have volleyball and soccer tournaments, but also lines and lines of booths of vendors and non-profit organizations, including one manned by the Wisconsin Milwaukee Mission Hmong elders), so I'll get to show Mom and Dad a real Hmong gathering, and a LOT of people at it. It will nice in the fall, and I'm way pumped to see everyone again! There are those who will be upset that I'm going back to WI already when I haven't gone to visit other family in other states for much longer (I can hear Cami now...), but I figure a trip back is kind of going to be now or never. Or at least now or a long time from now. So now it is. Hurrah! Three weeks!
