We got home last night after driving almost 1600 miles over three days. The kids and I left Saturday to start the drive since we figured it would take longer with four kids. We drove for eight hours that day, then another seven on Sunday, before we got to the town we were meeting my brother. Oh – I’ve had two of my nephews since we moved to TX and this was when we gave them back.
My brother figured we would meet about halfway – he drove through Wyoming and Colorado while I drove through Texas. Yeah, this is a huge state. 🙂 He went farther then I did though so his halfway was off a bit. Yesterday my kids and I made it home in one day – we didn’t stop as often as the other two days and I was so glad to get home.
I have a lot to do now – other then the standard cleaning up and laundry, we have two birthdays coming up, Chris is traveling for his job, homeschool starting and we still need to finish unpacking and putting the house together. I’m hoping to get a lot done while Chris is gone – I’d like the rooms finished and pictures hung up. But for now, let’s start with today. 🙂
