Well...we made it. Thanks, Evelyn, for hacking in and posting those pics.
We pulled in SC after 3 long days on the road last night and spent the day today recovering. The kids did GREAT.
I was reminded of several things that I temporarily forgot in the planning of this cross-country trip...
1. DanielMan does not sleep in the car. He never has.
2. My kids are 5, 3, and 2. Did I REALLY think I would be able to "get something done" in the car??
3. What I did get done: successfully figured out how to climb from the front to the back of the minivan at 75mph in every single state we traveled through. Keep in mind that the car was LOADED down with every possible diversion for the kids (and me). It was a feat of acrobatics.
4. When C-low-line complains of an "owie" and points to her tummy...watch out b/c she is probably going to puke. A lot. Thankfully, that was day 3.
Seriously...we had fun. I'll post some pics of the transportation museum in STL at some point...we stopped there Friday morning and it was a perfect thing for the kids. They got to run and see some great trains.
We're glad to be here. I have forgotten how to take care of my hair in this humidity, but I'll probably figure it out by the time we leave. Maybe I'll wear it curly. :)
