Road Trip

We're leaving tonight to take a little drive to see friends and family. Over the river and through the woods (and a mountain pass) to Grandmother's house we go.
It sure does take a lot of prep to get a family of eight out the door. How do the Duggers do it, anyway? I've spent all afternoon putting an outfit for each activity and occasion in a ziplock bag for each child: Friday morning at the beach, Friday night fellowship, Saturday morning synagogue, Saturday afternoon baby shower for the girls, Saturday night at Great-Grandma's, Sunday morning at our old church. Whew! Not to mention all the food and extra junk a family like our seems to need at every turn. Maybe I'll stay home while everyone else has fun over there. That would be a real vacation!

I hope you all had a wonderful vacation! It sure does take a lot of work for Mom when getting everyone ready, doesn't it! I am sure you had a great time. Your blog is great, I am glad I found it.

I am so glad that you didn't decide to stay home and have your own "vacation". We so enjoyed see you and your family last night. I just wish that we could have spent more time talking. But it was awesome having you all be a part of our small group. Come anytime.
