|Right around 1400 miles is the distance between our old and new homes. Caelyn was my sleepy-time driving relief, but the guys got no such luxury.|
|This was one of our frequent stops for food/fuel/potty. Many thanks to Kaitlyn for assembling our sandwiches while I finished packing.|
(We miss you, Kait!)
|Morgan's even adorable while eating a sandwich at the side of an interstate highway!|
|This family really ministered to ours, and our children had a wonderful time talking, playing with the dogs and seeing the farm.|
After a refreshing breakfast & lots of stimulating conversation, we were off...
|We stood on the roadside of I-40, about halfway between Nashville & Memphis, for close to three hours. It was a perfect opportunity for family bonding & more stimulating conversation.|
|The dogs traveled very well. I'm sure they were relieved by our own frequent stops for potty breaks.|
|Rhodes wasn't the only one in need of exercise after so many miles.|
I'm so thankful for Caelyn, who served as my relief when I got sleepy behind the wheel. Unfortunately, our three hours on the roadside created an imbalance in my schedule. This, in turn, made it necessary for me to stop and sleep twice when Caelyn was also too tired to drive. In the end, we arrived in Houston about eleven hours later than we had hoped.
*Having family in Houston*
We were pleasantly surprised to find that they had already been to our new home.
|I love the sign they made. Notice Chloe's clarification of where "Home" is located.|
|And so it begins...|
