Hasta la vista!
"Well, here we are, ready to go!"
"'Mom' wouldn't let us take our bed and the blanket Kaatja knit for us. Bummer."
"Now Princess, there just isn't enough room. They're trying to travel light, you know."
"Light, shmite. We don't get our bed! How will we sleep?"
"It'll be okay, Princess. You always get nervous before we travel."
"You're right. I worry that we'll get left behind somewhere, or that we'll get arrested for traveling without valid passports, or...."
"Think positive. We're going to have an adventure! And remember, you'll get to buy new clothes."
"Oh that's right! 'Mom" promised me a flamenco dress!"
"You bet. Arevaderchee, friends!"
"Is that supposed to be Italian? I thought you were French."
"I am French--and I'm multi-lingual. I just can't spell very well."
"Hasta la vista, friends---wish us a safe trip. We'll keep in touch."
