I think the only thing I left behind might have been my mind.
If you've ever packed for a trip- imagine that multiplied by about 35 days and then multiply that by 4 (me, 2 kiddos, and the hubby)- and I'm sure you could maybe imagine some of my stress.
We've got clothes, food- dry and cold, coolers, workout stuff, books for travel and pleasure, and pretty much the whole house crammed into our little van.
We are at my sister's house now- we will be here until Sunday morning when we will pull out and the real action will begin.
We've basically just been hanging out. We had burgers last night for supper and then this morning my sister and I went and got pedicures, looked at some gorgeous houses she and her husband are thinking of buying and made a trip to the health food store so I could stock up on some snack goodies.
We are headed, with the kids, to the pool here in a while.
Please keep us in all of your prayers that God will give us traveling grace and that he will help us to continue to have joy, love, and appreciation for one another throughout our trip (35 days in a car and hotel room together can test even the happiest of families).
Keep up with us- We'll take you to some great places- Bye for now!
