In truth, it had been a YEAR since I’ve seen my boys after starting The Rebuild Your Life Project-Los Angeles. What a sacrifice THEY made to allow me to come out here in hopes of teaching women that if they needed to rebuild their lives in a new city they could do it.

So I’ve been rebuilding MY life in Los Angels and I’m okay. The high point of this entire project was actually waking up one morning and seeing my kids in the bed and asking myself, “Is this real? Is this really happening?”

I couldn’t believe it. I did it. I saved up enough money to bring them out here from Florida AND have a good time while we did it. I’m almost crying just thinking about it right now. As we sat at the airport waiting for their flight to board, my 11 year old baby Solomon said, “Mommy, didn’t you move to LA with less than $200?”

I nodded. “I sure did.”

My 12-year-old baby looked at me, “Mommy. Wow! You’re doing GOOD!”

I hung my head low in amazement. Yes, I am.

Here are pictures of my sons and I having a BLAST in Los Angeles. If you ever come to vacation with your children in Los Angeles, please do try out these activities.
