Would you send your kids four hours away without you?

I have a very close friend who lives four hours away. She has been in my kids life ALL their lives and babysat many many times. She wants to take the kids for a weekend in February. They are off school on a Friday and Monday so she would pick them up Friday early afternoon and bring them back mid afternoon Monday.

So and I are both fine with it. We trust her. Kids are 5 and 7, lover her to death, and want to go. But my mom says I am irresponsibile and they are too young.

So what say you? Am I crazy? Or would you let them go?

Of course I would.  I don't see the big deal.

I didn't have a choice. That is how far my ex lived from us. Now he could care less about them, and so they stay home!

She's like family. I trust her completely and her husband as well.

I would not send my son, but I think you're doing the right thing :) my sis sent her 5, 8, and 13 year old 20 hours away with me for a month, and they had a great time

I don't have anyone I trust that much with my 4 yo

If you trust her I don't see anything wrong with it.

that's EXACTLY what SO said when I asked him. But my mom is freaking out like I am sending them off with strangers or something.
