My firstborn is headed on an adventure and I'm as jealous and happy for her as I could be. She and her classmates will stay with host families with the idea that they'll experience full language immersion. She finished her junior year of high school and is in a two-year International Baccalaureate Spanish class after her previous four. She is thrilled as she gets to visit Real Madrid's soccer stadium, home of her "boyfriend" (along with a million other girls) Cristiano Ronaldo. They head to Barcelona and also get to visit La Sagrada Familia, Gaudí's masterpiece, I'm hoping she takes a lot of photos. I must admit I did tear up a little as the bus pulled away.
