Wow, what a day. After much hard work we finally got on the road. We have had a lot of fun getting ready for this trip. Everyone has worked like a mule. Even AnaClaire has helped by staying out of the way for the most part. Please pray for our safety and for extra patience.
After we got on the road it didn’t take long for things to start happening. When we had hardly been on the road for 20min we all heard quite the story to explain why we should always pay attention. On Tuesday Mom had bought a taillight and then lost it. She was looking for it all evening. She spent much time and lost much sleep on trying to figure out where it was. Well what she didn’t know was that Dad had already put it on and had spent all night with Mom and the rest of us and he didn’t even know what we were looking for. Then today somehow or another this topic came up and when Dad heard that the taillight was what had caused Mom to lose so much sleep he told her abit of irritation and rolling of eyes from Mom. Dad could do nothing but just laugh at the fact that he had not even been paying attention to Mom that night. Later we all stopped and enjoyed a good fresh dinner at Cracker Barrel and some great classic checker games.
The four older children all got Kindles for our trip. It has been quite the learning experience for us as we all try to figure out how to download e-books off Moms computer. All the children also got some new workbooks to work on in the van. We also thank all of you reading this blog who gave books, their time, and money. We really appreciate it. Thank you. ☺
