So, in honor of my 32nd birthday tomorrow, I was thinking about going on a road trip with the kids. Our plan is for my husband, myself, and all kids to drive to the Dallas/Fort Worth area together, where his sister lives with her family. My husband would fly home from there to get back in time to preach on Sunday, and me and the kids would then head on east early next week.
Since I will be driving alone with all six kids (3 months to 9 years old), I will only be able to drive a maximum of 6 hours a day (two 3-hour stretches). We would love to go all the way to the east coast to see some of the places we have been learning about, but that would obviously get costly really quickly if I have to get a hotel room every single night.
I was wondering if there are any of my regular readers out there, who would be interested in putting us up for a night or two along the road, and maybe be able to point us to the attractions in their area. We do not really have an exact route planned because it would depend on the stops we would be making.
Crazy idea, and it well might not work out. But if this sounds like something you could and would like to do, please leave a comment, with your email address and preferably phone number (it will not be published).
We have enjoyed getting postcards and packages in the mail for our "Cantering the Country" project. We got a package all the way from Australia with some real "Vegemite"!!! Thank you so much! We also got a binder from Kentucky that was assembled with much love and care, and may partly be to blame for our "itch" to see the rest of the country.
My apologies for not updating the map on the right in the last couple of weeks. I will try to do so later today.
Finally, someone has some explaining to do. This morning, we received a package from Amazon with the game "Settlers of Catan" in it. I assumed it was a birthday gift my husband had ordered for me, but it wasn't. There was no note of explanation with it, so I called through the relatives, and nobody sent it. Can anyone explain this to me? If you sent this and are reading this, thank you so much! We love board games, and that is one I have been having my eye on. Thank you!
