After leaving Alabama at 5:30 am, we had a long day of driving, and we thank you for your prayers! Neither of the girls got carsick, and they listened intently to C.S. Lewis's "The Horse and His Boy" on audio for the ENTIRE trip! It was perfect because it kept Brandon awake, the girls happy, and put me straight to sleep. :-) No fussing...no running off the road due to being tired. We made great timing and arrived to visit our friends from seminary for Texas stop #1. Amy and Jason welcomed us into their home and served us a homemade supper complete with Texas brownies. Our kiddos all had a blast playing together. It was sad to say good-bye, but we are happy to realize that we can see each other more often, hopefully. Texas stop #2 brought us to Art and Trisha's and we were greeted by lots of babies!! Since we moved away from here 5 years ago, several of our friends have had babies, and we were blessed to have them welcome us into town. We loved getting to see the precious little ones!
In the morning, we will be going to the American Girl store for lunch. Libby and Clara are very excited, and I know they will be delighted to get to go there. For now, we are up late and doing what we love to do while we're here...stay up until the wee hours, eat junk and just catch up on life. Feels like vacation to me.
