Road Trip Time! We are road tripping from Woodstock, GA to Asheville, NC: Mom (Marylou), Tom, Allyson, Connor, Lainy Ann, Eleanor and I. While it is a beautiful drive, it is also a 4 hour drive. So we entertained ourselves by playing the ABC car game. I don't know if that is the official title of the game. Its the one where you look for a word on a sign that starts with 'A', then 'B', then 'C' and so on. Allyson (riding shotgun) and I (driving) thought it was a great idea and found A, B, C, and D right away while the kids and papa in back were still deciding whether or not to play. So somehow we were racing to the letter Z. Oh, and we were navigating highways and red lights through southern North Carolina.
The kids were getting so frustrated so they started finding hard letters; Q, Y, and Z and 'saving' them. Allyson and I just laughed and high-fived all the way down the road. On one sign alone we found 4 letters. Then as the hard letters came along we found words like Xceterra, Zone, and Unique.
Tonight sis and I have a sleep over and share a bed. Just like old times. Except tonight I will be getting up and nursing my baby while my 2 oldest sleep in the next room. I didn't realize how much I have missed my sister.
